Alexandria residents and visitors recently gathered together in a sea of green to kick off the 39th Annual Alexandria St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The parade, presented by the Ballyshaners, included 2,000 particpants.
Among those seen marching down King Street were the Notre Dame Alumni Band, dog rescue groups, pipe & drum bands, historical re-enactors, Shriners and Kena cars and Irish dancers.
