Historic Milton, Delaware is just minutes from the towns of Lewes, Rehoboth, and Dewey Beach.  By minutes, I mean about, 15 or 20 minutes.  No big deal, driving through our roads is a breeze

As towns get bigger and more progressive and as residents fight to keep them real, Milton is a classic example of life in a small historic town.

“Milton’s history is written in its streets, its architecture, its relationship to the Broadkill River, its industrial heritage, and its image and reputation throughout Delaware and beyond.”

Milton was once a hub of the button cutting industry.  A multi step and labor intensive process that was global.

If you want to know more about this historic town who is also the home of the much loved Dogfish Head Brewery, please visit:

So, on Sunday, March 11 you can join Irish Eyes Pub & Restaurant for the 5th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade, in Downtown Historic Milton.   It will start at 2 p.m.  Lineup will be on Atlantic and Hazzard Aves.

Let’s raise some GREEN for the Milton Fire Department Training Program, Best Buddies Delaware and Casa San Francisco.

Check the website of the Milton Fire Dept. to know more about the training program at http://www.milton85.com.

Best Buddies Delaware’s mission is “to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intelectual and developmental disabilities”.  More info?  Visit www.bestbuddiesdelaware.org.

Casa San Francisco is also located in Milton.  It is an emergency adult shelter.  It also provides a wide range of services aimed at helping low-income residents of Sussex County.  More info?  Visit www.cdow.org/casasanfran.html.

This 5th Annual St. Patricks Parade will be fun for all ages.  So, get your green on!!  Stick around for the after party under the tent with Live Irish Music by Danny Quinn, food & beverages, beer trucks pouring Dogfish Head beer, Face Painting, Green Beer, 50/50’s, Irish (Chinese) Auction, Giveaways, prizes and so much more.
