  • St. Augustine's Easter Parade, now in its 59th year, is the nation's second oldest Easter Parade. The Parada de los Caballos y Coches (Parade of Horses and Carriages) has celebrated Easter annually since 1956.  This is a real hometown parade that welcomes visitors to join in the community's celebration of the history and culture of the nation's oldest city. The Grand Marshal in 2018 is Miss Florida, Sara Veng.

    Spectators line the streets to watch the marching bands, floats, drill teams, the Easter Bunny, clowns, the Royal Family, Imperial Storm Troopers, and the city’s carriage horses wearing their Easter hats. Trophies are presented to winners in four categories.

    The parade begins at 3:00 p.m. on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, stepping off just north of the Mission of Nombre de Dios, heads south on San Marco Ave., continues south along the bayfront on Avenida Menendez, and winds through downtown to finish at the Plaza de la Constitución.

    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 round out the parade.
