Tampa's Civic Pride Nighttime Parade
SANT' YAGO KNIGHT PARADE
The Knight Parade follows Tampa's annual Gasparilla celebration. The Krewe of the Knights of Sant' Yago has hosted it every year since 1974, and it is considered the largest of its kind in the Southeast.
Attracting spectators of every age, the entire Ybor City area of Tampa comes to life the night of the Knight Parade.
The Parade itself is a colorful celebration of civic pride, beaming with illuminated floats, costumed participants, plenty of music, dancing in the streets, and lots and lots of BEADS.
