The Literacy Center of Milford’s annual Leprechaun Leap will take place at Walnut Beach on Sunday, March 22.
The Leap was originally scheduled for Saturday but was rescheduled so as not to coincide with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Residents and groups are invited to “take the leap” for the center at 1 p.m. sharp. Registration is from 12 to 12:45.
“Leapers” from around the city will collect donations from family members, co-workers and friends, and run, jump or dive into the icy cold waters at Walnut Beach.
There’s always plenty of room for spectators.
Trophies will be awarded in several categories, including Best Costume, Most Enthusiastic, Group Theme, Largest Group of Leapers, Most Individual Pledges, Highest Group Pledges, First One in Water, First One Out of Water, Bravest Junior Leaper (under 12), Best Tailgate Party, Favorite Civic Organization, Best Leprechaun Costume and Favorite Literacy Leaper.
The awards ceremony will take place at a party at Bridge House Restaurant following the event.
All proceeds collected will benefit The Literacy Center of Milford.
The Milford Bank and Milford Kiwanis are the event sponsors.
