Bagpipes, Shriners, shamrocks, drums, dogs, antique cars, thousands of people in Old Town Alexandria, and more green than you could shake a stick at (preposition intended)! This could mean nothing other than St. Patrick’s Day of course. But st. patty’s day isn’t until the 17th of March you say. Well not this year, it is the 15th so it doesn’t conflict with the Roman Catholic Church’s Holy Monday. But it’s still not the 15th you say. I will tell you that you are correct and then tell you that here in the D.C. and Northern Virginia area we celebrate it today. That’s all I got for ya.
My friend and fellow photographer Vithaya and I had a great time photographing some of the people and festivities. Enjoy some of my photographs. Highlights for me include bagpipes, men in kilts, and dogs in green.
