Our story begins in 2008. Irish Eyes had been operating in Milton for almost 2 years and was searching for a way to be more involved with this wonderful town. The Milton St. Patrick's Day Parade was born from this desire to give back to the town that welcomed us with open arms. We had a bit of a slow start....the first year we had only a dozen entries. We raised about $1000 for the Milton Fire Department and Casa San Francisco.

Now here we are twelve years later and boy have we grown! This year we have four benefactors: The Milton Fire Department, The Milton Chamber of Commerce, the Gladys Wilkins Seeding the Future Scholarship Fund, and the Milton 4th of July Fireworks Fund. The 12th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade included over 75 entries and combined with the 7th Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K we were able to donate almost $20,000 to our benefactors. In 2020, we expect to grow even more. The key to our success has always been the wonderful support of the local businesses and residents. This year is no different! We know we can count on our community to participate again, so we hope to see you Sunday, March 8th at 11am for the 8th Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K and at 2pm for the 13th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
