Join the Parade
The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Alexandria — Sponsored by The Ballyshaners, Inc.
Each year, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is presented by The Ballyshaners, Inc. While the City provides many services for a fee, such as the police officers, maintenance workers, and many others who make the parade possible, the members of the Ballyshaners coordinate the actual staging and presentation of the parade, the Classic Car Show, and the Fun Dog Show.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is now into its fourth decade and the number and variety of participants is greater than ever before. With more than 2,000 participants in nearly 100 units, it stretches down King Street to the Potomac waterfront.
Each year, we need volunteers to work as Parade Marshals assisting in various duties ranging from program distribution to unit staging. Marshals are needed from 10:00 a.m. until approximately 2:30 p.m. Marshal duties take place in Old Town Alexandria along the parade route and in the staging area.
