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 three benefactors: The Milton Fire Department, The Milton Chamber of Commerce, the Women's Club of Milton. The 14th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade included over 75 entries and combined with the 9th Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K we were able to donate almost $20,000 to our benefactors. In 2020, the 5k had over 300 participants.  In 2021 we were forced to take a year off.  In 2022, we had 298 finishers. 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 12th at 11am for the 10th Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K and at 2pm for the 15th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
