Members of the Défilé de la Saint-Patrick committee Michel Sawyer, Bruce Kirkwood, James Kerwin, James Donovan and Robert Roger Bolduc marched near the head of the parade. See more photos on page 4.

Thousands of Irish eyes were smiling as the ninth annual Défilé de la Saint-Patrick made its way through the Montcalm district and into the heart of Old Quebec on March 25, a week after St. Patrick’s Day. The parade is always held a week later in Quebec City, as many of the bands participate in the Montreal parade the previous weekend.
