Following its cancellation due to windy weather earlier in the month, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been rescheduled to Sunday, the Ballyshaners announced last week.
The parade will take place in Old Town at 1:30 p.m. and will follow a revised map, starting at St. Asaph Street, turning on Lee Street and ending at the intersection of Cameron and Royal streets.
The Fun Dog Show will be held at Market Square from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The dog show will award prizes to winners of each of its four categories – owner look alike, St. Patrick’s spirit award, best costume and most talented.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade isn’t the only Irish-themed activity in Alexandria this weekend. Port City Brewery will host its St. Patrick’s Day party on Saturday. The event, which takes place from noon to 9 p.m., will feature live music, dancing and festive beer selections.
