57th Annual Easter Week Festival parade

275-SHAVER-EASTER-PARADEThe rain stayed away long enough to launch the original 57th Annual Easter Week Festival parade this afternoon and many Historic City News readers were in attendance.

The St. Augustine Easter Parade began in 1956 through the organization of the St. Augustine Easter Week Festival, which was created at the time to increase tourism in the area.

This family friendly parade, always on Easter Sunday, is known as the Parada delos Caballos y Coches, Parade of Horses and Carriages, and features St. Augustine’s Royal Family, the Easter Bunny, clowns, drill teams, community floats and marching bands,
