The parade started at 10am, and Saint Patrick blessed us with a beautiful day. Full of kilts, bag pipes, floats and everything that makes a St Patrick’s Day parade exceptional was there. Grand Marshall this year was St. Augustine’s founder, Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles (portrayed by Chad Light).
The parade traveled down Orange Street to Avenida Menendez (the bayfront), then to Cathedral Place, next on Cordova Street, then back to Orange Street. Spectators arrived early to claim a spot along the parade route … then followed the parade to the Celtic Festival at Francis Field. Tons of people and a lot of great fun.
