Old Town St. Patrick’s Day parade today, March 7

My apologies for the late notice, but I’m sure I’m not the only one whose schedule got thrown off by Mother Nature’s last winter reminder this week that SHE is in control! The 2015 Alexandria Saint Patrick’s Day parade is today, Saturday, March 7, in Old Town Alexandria.

The parade itself begins at 12:30 pm at the intersection of King and Alfred Streets, but if you get down to Market Square early, you can participate in (or just watch and enjoy) the fun dog show put on by the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria! The dog show begins at 11:15, onsite registration starts at 10:30 and costs $40 to enter your pup in the fun categories such as Best Irish Costume and more.

I know, it’s bitterly cold out. But hey, what’s more Irish than pink cheeks and a ruddy complexion? And there’s plenty of shops and Starbucks, not to mention bars, to duck into and grab a cup of something to warm your heart…and nose…and toes…
