  • This year is the 32nd annual St. Patrick's Day Parade
  • It's one of Ottawa's smaller parades but it's still a good time. Each year on a Saturday close to St. Patrick's Day, the Irish Society of the National Capital Region celebrates Irish tradition and heritage.
  • 2014 route: The parade will leave the intersection of Laurier Avenue West and Elgin St at 11:00 AM. The parade heads west down Laurier, turns north on Bank Street, then left on Wellington Street. It continues west down Wellington to the Library and Archives Canada building, finishing there around 12:30pm.
  • Volunteers along the parade route will collect cash and non-perishable food donations for the Ottawa Food Bank.
  • The St. Patrick's parade is part of a larger "Irish Week" festival that runs from March 6-17, 2014.
  • Official site: Irish Society of the National Capital Region
