A Lovely Day for a St. Patrick’s Day Parade

A Lovely Day for a St. Patrick’s Day Parade

What’s one of the many reasons to love Alexandria? Parades, of course! From the Del Ray Halloween Parade to the Scottish Walk Parade, George Washington’s Birthday Parade and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Old Town, our city loves a good street performance. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which took place this past weekend (the first of many St. Patrick’s Day parades in the DC region), could possibly be my favorite. Here’s a few reasons why:

Bagpipes and marching bands galore.
