The 6th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade stepped off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at Francis Field in St. Augustine. The parade route followed the bayfront to the Bridge of Lions, took a right down Cathedral Place, and returned to its origin via Cordova Street. The parade was a spectacle of floats, marching bands, pipes and drums, horse-drawn carriages, military units, local community groups, and more.
The Parade Marshal for the 2016 St. Patrick’s Day Parade was Jerry Cameron, who recently retired as St. Johns County Assistant County Administrator. With over 25 years experience in the public sector and 20 years in the private sector, Cameron currently holds the position of Community Outreach Manager for Flagler Hospital.
This event was free to view along the sidewalks of the parade route.
