The arch on St-Julie street was decorated for the St-Patrick’s Day parade in the early 1920’s.  The last St-Patrick’s day parade in Quebec City was in 1926.

Organizers of the St-Patrick's Day parade have been given the green light to stage the event, missing from the city for nearly 85 years, March 20.

"It was a lot to get it all hammered out," said the parade's chief organizer Peter Ferrell, owner of Nelligan's Pub, but, he said the official word arrived Monday. An official announcement will be made downtown next Tuesday.
