The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is organized by the Ballyshaners, (Gaelic for “Old Towner’s”). The Ballyshaners is a not-for-profit group that seeks to promote and preserve the rich Irish heritage through organization of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Alexandria, and the Ballyshaners Festival, held every summer.
This year Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub is sponsoring a social event to help fund the Parade. We need to raise $50,000 to pay for all required services and resources needed to fund the Parade. For a suggested donation of $10, you will be able to enjoy traditional Irish entertainment, food and revelry on Sunday, 02/17/19 from 4-7 pm at Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub, 713 King St., Alexandria, Va.
We depend upon the generosity of everyone in Old Town to host this parade. Without your donations there is no Old Town Alexandria St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The first such celebration in the United States every year.
