The parade, which winds its way through the historic streets of Old Town Alexandria, was quite a success. As ASF made its way down the city’s charming avenues, the Regiment took position at the front of the parade and ceremonially fired their muskets to the delight of those lining the parade route.
The festival was hosted by The Campagna Center, with proceeds benefitted their six educational programs. Made possible with the help of partnerships with The Scottish Government, The Saint Andrew’s Society of Washington, D.C. and the City of Alexandria, the weekend was a roaring success. Besides the parade, it featured a variety of festivities that celebrated the rich Scottish heritage of the area, including Scotch tastings, historic tours, and holiday markets.
What a weekend they put together. The American Scottish Foundation plans to be in attendance again at next year’s festivities!
