36th Annual Parade – Saturday, March 15, 2014
We invite you to attend and support Naples’ premier winter event — The 36th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, to be held on Saturday, March 15th, 2014 in Downtown Naples.
The parade staging area and beginning of the parade will be at Saint Ann’s Church in Old Naples. The parade travels down 3rd Street South to 5th Avenue, then goes down 8th Street South to end at Crayton Cove.
Be sure to join us for the traditional flag raising ceremony at Crayton Cove at 9:30 a.m. to kick off the parade.
Thirty-six years ago a group of fun-loving Neapolitan’s got together and decided to have a parade to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Through the hard work of many volunteers and the generous support of patrons like you, the Parade has prospered in the decades since.
It is now the largest privately-funded Parade in the state. It draws over 40,000 people to downtown Naples each year to celebrate Irish heritage and Irish culture in America.
