The popular Downtown Milford Inc. St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, which had been cancelled the past two years due to the pandemic, returned triumphantly on Saturday, March 18. Downtown was filled with revelers wearing their green and visiting many of the shops which were open late for the event.

“We are thrilled to have had all of those that supported us at Downtown Milford, Inc. and our local businesses,” Shelby DiCostanzo, who headed the Pub Crawl committee, said. “We had so many people using their purchased passports in order to enter to win prizes, enjoy tastings or hop on the shuttle bus that would take them out to Mispillion Brewing and EasySpeak. The night was a huge success, and the participants were absolutely thrilled.”

This year’s event, called “Toasting the Town” The Parker Group offered tastings of Thompson Island brews while DMI provided tastings of Dogfish brands. A “Paddy Pass” which cost $20 per person allowed participants to participate in tastings as well as get unlimited rides on the shuttle which began and ended at Arena’s. The shuttle ran from 5:00 PM until 11:00 PM.

Many downtown businesses remained open later on Saturday, offering discounts and drawings to encourage those on the crawl to stop in. Several bars and restaurants added food as well as drink specials to their menu for the evening.

“We are already looking forward to next year when we can make it even bigger and better,” DiCostanzo said. “Anyone who is interested in volunteering to help with this event can call 302-839-1180 to see what they need to do.”
