Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce St. Patrick’s Day Float/March

The Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce will be entering a float in the St Patrick’s Day Parade, and we want our members to be a part of it! This event is the largest parade of the year in Milford, so this provides you an opportunity to build tremendous brand recognition and let folks know you support the community!
For just a $200 donation, we will include your logo on our float banner, related merchandise, and space to march along with other business leaders.
This is always a fun event, and St. Patrick’s Day 2023 is sure to be one of the best!

It's not just another gift card!

It’s treating someone to a delicious meal or a really great spa day, even from miles away. It’s a coffee break (or five!) for the students in your life during the peak of finals. It’s a housewarming gift that doesn’t end up in the closet for years unnoticed. It’s a simple way to say Thanks, Great Job, Happy Birthday, and so much more.
Accepted at over 30 hot spots to shop, dine, and enjoy the best of the Milford area.
