The 2015 St. Augustine Easter Parade also known as the Parada de los Caballos y Coches (Parade of Horses and Carriages) on Easter Sunday celebrates the holiday and local community as an annual tradition dating back to the 1950's.
During the promenade Visitors and locals will enjoy marching bands, floats, drill teams, the Easter Bunny, clowns, the Royal Family and the city’s carriage horses wearing hats donated by nationally-recognized women.
The parade starts at the Mission of Nombre de Dios and heads south on San Marco Ave., south on Avenida Menendez, winding through downtown. Whether you are staying the night at the inn or have just checked out, the parade will wind through the historic district just steps away from our front door!
The St. Augustine Royal Family will lead the parade followed by their entourage, bands, locally-made parade floats, pirates, festival representatives along with the Easter Bunny to complete the parade.
The parade takes place on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, 3 – 4:30 p.m.
