St. Augustine Easter Parade 2012

It’s almost that time of year again! We can hear the Easter Bunny hopping down the lane (or is he riding in the back of a roaring Camaro?). One of St. Augustine’s best traditions, the St. Augustine Easter Parade is just around the corner!

On Sunday April 8th, after church services, you’ll want to secure a spot along the parade route for the 54th Annual St. Augustine Easter Parade. The procession will begin at the Mission of Nombre de Dios on San Marco Avenue just north of the Visitor’s Center and head south on San Marco/Castillo Dr/Avenida Menendez in front of the Castillo de San Marcos. At the base of the Bridge of Lions the parade will turn and go along the north side of the plaza (Cathedral Place) in front of the Cathedral Basilica. From there, the parade will turn right onto Cordova Street on the edge of the Flagler College Campus and head back up to the Special Events Field on Orange Street. 
This is a great event for the whole family filled with pirates, ghosts, marching bands, clowns, car clubs, representatives of the Spanish Royal Family and of course a special appearance from the Easter Bunny himself. We’ve added a collage of photos from last year’s parade below and added a gallery to our Facebook page.
