Bit o’Irish brings crowds to Milford

Terry RogersCulture, Headlines, Milford Headline Story

Milford was teeming with people sporting their shamrocks and green garb for the Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI) Pub Crawl. Almost 1,000 people wandered around downtown, checking out bars, restaurants and even a few businesses offering tastings, drink and food specials along with music. Two buses transported revelers from the downtown area to Surf and Turf, Mispillion River Brewing and EasySpeak to extend the celebration.

“This was one of the best Pub Crawls we have had in years,” Sara LeBright, Executive Director of DMI, said. “People were dancing, laughing and imply enjoying each other’s company all over Milford.”

Bagpipers played at Milford Tavern to a packed house while bands played at other locations throughout Milford. Arena’s, Park Place, EasySpeak, Surf and Turf as well as Mispillion River Brewing and the tavern were standing room only for the entire night.

“We cannot thank all the participants, sponsors and businesses enough,” Shelby DiCostanzo, President of DMI, said. “Our bus drivers were amazing and got our crawlers around town safely. We are already planning for next year and hope to make this event even bigger and better!”

The Irish celebrations continue next Sunday, March 24 with the Irish Music and Dance Concert at Milford Senior Center from 1 to 4 PM. The event, a partnership between DMI and Irish Rose, will have Seven Rings Band, McAleer Paulson Irish Dancers, Blarney the Leprechaun and bagpipers. Irish scones, soda bread, jellies and more will be provided along with coffee, tea and a cash bar.

“Tickets are $30 per person and may be purchased in person at Irish Rose or online,” LeBright said. “This is a fun event that will be sure to bring out the Irish in everyone.”
