And St. Augustine’s St. Patrick Parade commemorates the first historically documented St. Patrick parade anywhere in the world, the next year, in 1601.
In Ireland, St. Patrick Day was a quiet, solemn occasion, marking the Saint’s death.
Here in St. Augustine, we fired the cannons and marched in the streets!
Recognized internationally by IrishCentral.com, the History Channel, and Ireland of the Welcomes Magazine as one of the seven most remarkable St. Patrick celebrations in the United States.
The Parade includes 50+ units with hundreds of participants.
The Parade is held in early March every year in downtown St. Augustine, Florida.
