Gasparilla season is back in Tampa Bay, and so is the Knights of Sant’ Yago Knight Parade in Ybor City. Join the Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago as they parade through the streets of Ybor on Saturday, February 12 at 7 P.M. In this Tampa Bay tradition since 1974, all ages can watch as parade floats roll through 7th Avenue in Ybor City. This is a great way to celebrate your Tampa Bay pride, and the season of Gasparilla.
Last year, the Knights of Sant’ Yago Knight Parade was cancelled due to COVID-19, so this year will be extra special. Not only will you have a chance to watch illuminated floats go by, but you’ll also see some familiar faces from Q105. MJ from the MJ Morning Show will be this year’s Grand Marshall.
Sarasota resident, broadcaster, actor, producer, lawyer and politician, Jerry Springer is also a special guest!
