The Grand Parade in downtown St. Augustine began in front of the Castillo de San Marcos at 11:00 a.m., when church bells rung and there was a cannon salute from the fort officially starting the parade. The parade continued south to turn west onto Cathedral Place and then move north on Cordova Street to finish up at Francis Field. The parade was presented by the Veterans Council of St. Johns County and the Ancient City Chapter of the Military Officers Association in America. The Grand Marshall was James J. Townsend, Jr., U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for European and NATO Policy. The Consul Generals representing France, Spain, and England attended the parade.
