Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Alexandria
Saturday, March 7, 2015


Update Thursday evening - check the Twitter feed (link below) at around 2pm Friday. We will make an announcement as to the Parade's status then.

Until we are given a cancellation notice by Alexandria City officials, THE PARADE IS STILL ON. We will update this site as soon as possible if we hear otherwise.

For the most up-to-date information, please check out the Ballyshaners Twitter feed (you do not need to sign up for a Twitter account to view that), which will be updated more rapidly than this website.

UNLESS YOU SEE SOMETHING ON THIS WEBSITE OR THE TWITTER FEED ABOVE SPECIFICALLY STATING OTHERWISE, THE PARADE WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED.

Thanks for your understanding while we work with the City and Mother Nature to celebrate Irish heritage this weekend.


If you have submitted an application to march in the Parade, but have not yet received a reply to that application, please email the Parade Captain at
Ballyshaners_parade@yahoo.com.
