The 11th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 2 PM

The Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day parade began in 2008 and was held by the Irish Eye. The first year had a slow start with only a dozen entries that raised about $1000 for the Milton Fire Department and Casa San Francisco. Now, fast forward 10 years later to the 2017 parade- this parade included over 75 entries to support three benefactors: The Milton Fire Department, The Milton Chamber of Commerce and the Gladys Wilkins Seeding the Future Scholarship Fund. Combined with the Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5k, the Milton community was able to donate over $20,000 to their benefactors!

With the outstanding support of the local Milton businesses and residents, the parade is expected to grow even more this year! Please contact Irish Eyes in Milton for more information at 302-684-8889 or via email at
