Hundreds of people from all over travelled to Milton March 9 to enjoy the wearing of the green. Presented by Irish Eyes Milton, the parade celebrated its seventh year. The day began with a 5K run/walk and finished with the Irish Pipe Brigade from Wildwood, N.J.

Proceeds benefit the Milton Fire Department, Casa San Fransisco, Best Buddies Delaware and Milton Chamber of Commerce.
