Looking for ways to celebrate St. Patty’s Day in Tampa this year? Head over to Historic Ybor City on Saturday, March 18th and catch the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.
This year, we get to celebrate St Patrick’s Day TWICE on the same weekend. Finish the weekend off the Rough Riders way with our annual St Patrick’s Night Parade. Applications are going out as we speak. Make sure your krewe or organization gets theirs so you don’t miss out on fun.
The Rough Riders Krewe hosts the event in collaboration with the City of Tampa to present a parade with over 100 floats and Krewes. The parade starts at 8pm and draws more than 20,000 people to Ybor City each year dressed in their festive green attire.
So dress in your favorite green hats, shirts, feather boas and beads and head over to Tampa’s historical Ybor City for the parade at 8pm Saturday night. And best of all, the parade is completely FREE!
Be sure to check out all the clubs and bars along Seventh Ave. as well before and after the parade to get your St. Patty’s Day party on.
Will you attend the parade this year?
