Downtown Milford, Inc. hosted its first Irish Music and Dance Concert on Friday, March 15 at the Jesus Love Temple in Downtown Milford. The event featured the Willie Lynch Band, McAleer School of Dance, and the Dover Police & Fire Pipes and Drums.

The McAleer School of Irish Dance was founded 50 years ago by Alice McAleer who sought to enrich the community by passing on her knowledge of Irish dance and culture. The Dover Police & Fire Pipes & Drums are all volunteers and honor those that have served and lost their lives in the line of duty.

“It was exciting to see so many new faces at the Irish Dance & Music Concert on Friday night,” said DMI President Sara Pletcher. “We attracted a demographic we’ve never attracted before and gave them an opportunity to celebrate this great holiday in their hometown.”

On Saturday, March 16 the festivities continued with the 9th Annual St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl. A “toasting the town” tradition for the Milford community, this year’s Pub Crawl featured downtown business hosting beverage tastings from local breweries, wineries and distilleries as well as family designated driver locations offering non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. The event encouraged participants to walk through Downtown Milford wearing official Pub Crawl race bibs, as businesses and restaurants offered specials for event goers.

“Seeing the Downtown stores so full of life is enchanting and inspires DMI to keep doing what we’re missioned to do,” said Pletcher. “When people buy bibs and stroll town, they’re giving back to their community in a fun way. DMI is privileged to be the beneficiary of their support and we look forward to putting the funds right back into our unique Downtown community.”
