City of Alexandria and the Ballyshaners Host 27th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Saturday, March 1
Festivities Include Classic Car Competition and Fun Dog Show
 
The City of Alexandria and Ballyshaners will host the 27th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade this Saturday, March 1, beginning at 12:30 p.m. in celebration of Irish-American heritage.  The parade begins at King and West Streets and follows a route down King Street, past the reviewing stand at North Royal Street, and ends at the corner of King and Fairfax Streets. The parade is expected to conclude by 2:30 p.m.  The Grand Marshal for the 2008 Parade will be His Excellency, Archbishop Edwin O'Brien, of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, MD.
 
The day’s festivities officially kick off with the Classic Car Show Competition.  The show starts at 10 a.m. with automobiles on display on North Pitt Street, adjacent to King Street. Vern Parker, noted Washington Times columnist and expert in the classic car field, will judge the competition and award the “Frank Cherry Trophy.”  The Fun Dog Show begins at 10:30 a.m. in Market Square (corner of North Royal and King Streets) and concludes at noon.
 
All events are free to the public.  Metrorail riders should use the King Street Metro stop where DASH bus shuttle service is available to and from the parade festivities. 
 
All events are sponsored by the Ballyshaners—Gaelic for “Old Towners”—a not-for-profit group that organizes and orchestrates the Alexandria St. Patrick’s Day Parade in partnership with the City of Alexandria.
