We invite you to attend and support Naples’ premier winter event — The 35th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, to be held on Saturday, March 16th, 2013 in Downtown Naples.
Thirty-five 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.
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.
