Milford’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place Saturday, March 21 in downtown Milford.
The parade was initially scheduled for Saturday, March 14, but was postponed due to last weekend’s heavy rain.
Chairman Marty Hardiman initially said he had no thoughts of postponing the parade, but with forecasts for very heavy rain, he changed his mind.
Chris Saley is this year’s grand marshal, and Sarah Grace Sugrue is this year’s Miss Emerald Isle.
The parade will start at the Parsons Complex at 1 p.m. and run from West Main Street to River Street to the end of the green on South Broad Street.
The parade is sponsored each year by the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, and usually attracts about 20,000 spectators.
The Literacy Center’s annual Leprechaun Leap was also rescheduled, so as not to coincide with the parade. The Leap was initially scheduled for Saturday, March 21, but has been changed to Sunday, March 22 at 1 p.m., with registration from 12 to 12:45 p.m. at Walnut Beach.
