Alexandria knows how to throw a great parade, and the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 2, should be a good one.

The parade will start at the intersection of King and St. Asaph streets and move east along King Street to Lee Street. From there the parade turns north one block then heads back west along Cameron Street to the Pitt Street intersection.

A reviewing stand will be set up on Royal Street.

The parade will also come with a host of road closures around Old Town, starting at 7 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. Parked cars will be cleared away starting at 9 a.m.

Prince Street and Queen Street will both be blocked off from Washington Street to Lee Street. Saint Asaph street will be closed from Duke Street to Queen Street to accommodate the staging area.

There are several parking garages throughout Old Town, but there will be $5 all-day parking at the Courthouse Garage and the City Hall Garage.

Notably, both of those are behind the road closures, so those hoping to take advantage of that $5 all-day parking might not be able to access their cars between 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

For those currently at the parade on Saturday who found this article frantically googling “Alexandria St. Patrick’s Day parade bathrooms” there are five public restrooms around the parade route at:

  • The Market Square Garage
  • Ramsay House
  • Torpedo Factory
  • City Marina
  • Robinson Landing Building
