Milton’s Parade Kicks off St. Pattys Day

251

On Sunday, March 9 the town of Milton was home to the annual St. Patrick’s Day in downtown. The event began in 2008 when local restaurant Irish Eyes was searching for a way to be more involved in the community. The Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade was born from “this desire to give back to the town that welcomed us with open arms.”

The first year had just one dozen entries and raised about $1,000 for the Milton Fire Department and Casa San Francisco. Last year, the Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade included over 75 entries and combined with the 6th Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K, was able to donate almost $20,000 to the benefactors.
