Milford goes green

Terry RogersCulture, Headlines, Milford Headline Story

The popular Pub Crawl will return as part of the “Milford Goes Green” promotion

Businesses in Milford will be “Going Green” the entire month of March in order to promote shopping and dining throughout the city. Starting March 1, businesses will offer discounts and specials on items using either green price tags or items that are green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

“We thought this would be a great way to get people to come to Milford and see what we have to offer,” Sara LeBright, Interim Executive Director of Downtown Milford, Inc., said. “Although DMI is focused on growing our downtown area, we are hoping that all our businesses will hop on board to offer “green” specials.”

The Go Green promotion is planned all month with the very popular St. Patty’s Day Pub Crawl celebrating the downtown area on March 16 from 6 PM until Midnight. Buses are available to those who purchase wristbands for $25. The buses will travel from Arena’s on Northeast Front Street to EasySpeak Spirits, Mispillion River Brewing as well as Surf and Turf for festivities planned at those locations. In addition, downtown bars and restaurants will offer St. Patty’s Day specials and events.

“This is always such a popular event,” LeBright said. “We love seeing everyone dressed in costume as they “crawl” through Milford for this event. This year, we are holding special raffles at various businesses, but you have to be present to win, so make sure you listen for those special announcements about where to be and when.”

Wristbands for the Pub Crawl can be purchased at the DMI office, 10 South Walnut Street, Milford or on Eventbrite.

The Milford Goes Green fun extends to the upcoming Irish Music and Dance Concert

The Irish excitement does not end with the Pub Crawl, however. On Sunday, March 24, the Irish Music and Dance Concert is planned at the Milford Senior Center from 1 to 4 PM. This event features Seven Rings Irish Band and the McAleer Paulson Irish Dancers. Blarney the Leprechaun and bagpipers will also be on hand. Irish refreshments, including scones, soda bread, crackers and cheese jellies, along with coffee, tea and a cash bar are available.

“There is lots of dancing and excitement at this concert,” Eugenia Sparks, organizer of the concert, said. “It is just a really fun way to celebrate all things Irish and everyone who has attended talks about how much they enjoy it.”

Tickets for the Irish Music and Dance Concert are $30 and available at Irish Rose Gift Shop at 42 North Walnut Street in Milford or on Eventbrite.

Sponsorships are still available for both the St. Patty’s Day Pub Crawl and the Irish Music and Dance Concert. To learn more, contact DMI at 302-839-1180 or email [email protected].
