The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in St. Augustine, Florida.
The 7th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade stepped off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, 2017, 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 is a spectacle of floats, marching bands, pipes and drums, horse-drawn carriages, military units, local community groups, and more.
The parade marshals for the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade were representatives from many of the first responder teams who were so invaluable in helping the St. Augustine community in its recovery efforts after Hurricane Matthew.
