Green Glee in Milton: A St. Patrick’s Day Extravaganza!

Get ready, folks! The Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade is back and greener than ever! Scheduled for March 10, 2024, this dazzling event is marching into its 16th year, promising a day filled with shamrocks, smiles, and a wee bit of magic.

The parade, a vision in green, began as a small gathering in 2008 and has since blossomed into a spectacle with over 75 entries last year. It’s not just about leprechauns and floats; this event is a heartwarming tribute to the Milton Fire Department, the Milton Chamber of Commerce, and the Milton Community Foundation. Think of it as a pot of gold for the community!

And when you think the day couldn’t get any livelier, the Quayside at the Milton Theatre rolls out its emerald carpet. Starting at noon, this free event is where music and merriment meet.

Now, let’s paint a picture of the parade. Imagine a stream of vibrant floats, peppered with the enthusiastic cheers of the community. From the tiniest tots dressed as fairy-tale creatures to the most elaborate displays of Irish pride, this parade is a feast for the eyes. The air buzzes with the tunes of bagpipes, the clatter of Irish dancers, and the laughter of families. It’s a scene straight out of a storybook, with a Delaware twist.

For Charity

But it’s not all play; this parade is a powerhouse of charity. Each float, each step taken in the 5K, contributes to the heart and soul of Milton. It’s a day where community spirit shines as bright as the spring sun.

As the day unfolds, the streets of Milton transform into a carnival of color. Food stalls offer a taste of Ireland, while local crafts paint the town in every shade of green. It’s a day where every handshake feels warmer, and every smile is a little wider.

So, mark your calendars, don your festive attire, and join the jubilee in Milton. Whether you’re there for the parade, the race, or the tunes at Quayside, one thing’s for sure – this St. Patrick’s Day in Milton is going to be unforgettable. After all, in the words of the Irish, “May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door!”
