Leprechaun 5k + Kids Fun Run
Do you like to run or walk? Do you wish you could extend St. Patrick’s season past parade day? Then we have the event for you! Wear your green and enjoy a run that is much flatter than some of the other road races in March. When you’re finished with the run, grab a pint of Guinness or one of the Irish-themed specialty drinks, listen to live music on the patio, and meet the West Springfield Colleens while the kids enjoy their own entertainment!

How to Get Your Local Business Involved!

With our 250th Anniversary happening in 2024 we know that we are so fortunate to have many local businesses that have withstood the test of time in West Springfield. Keeping that in mind we would like to highlight you!

How this works…send us an email! In the next couple of month, we will also work on making connections too!

We would love to hear your story and highlight what you have to offer our residents, how long you have been in West Springfield, and if you are going to participate in our 250 Celebration.

Being mindful that not all local businesses can donate monetarily we wanted to offer other ways that the Town of West Springfield can support you at no cost. Giving an example, we are going to be partnering with a local bake shop who will have a specialty cupcake in 2024. This does not go above and beyond their normal course of business while we are able to generate some buzz around your business for our celebration.


If you would be interested in an opportunity such as this one, email celebrate250@tows.org to start brainstorming how we can support you!
