Ottawa Irish Festival

Calling all #redheads and #gingers and #wannabes (you can always wear a wig)!
We Want YOU!

The Irish Society of the National Capital Region is looking for individuals with the rarest hair colour out there — red — to participate in this year’s annual St. Patrick’s Parade on March 11.

Involvement is up to the ginger-haired participant — volunteer, watch from the route, or take part in the parade.

The parade begins at city hall and follows a route along Bank Street to Aberdeen Pavilion, at Lansdowne Park.
