St. Augustine holds 8th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade


Bands of green lined the streets of St. Augustine last Saturday, March 10, as the Ancient City hosted its 8th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Nearly 50 groups participated in the parade, which traveled down Orange Street to Avenida Menendez, then to Cathedral Place, next on Cordova Street and back to Orange Street. Participating groups included Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department Pipes and Drums, the St. Augustine Yacht Club, the St. Augustine Tea Party, two horse units and more.

Several attendees subsequently enjoyed the St. Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival, which was held at Francis Field.
