The Krewe of Sant’ Yago’s annual celebration of Tampa civic pride is back! The 2017 Knight Parade will feature the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as grand marshals, and The Glazer Family Foundation will join the Bucs as special guests.
Every February, costumed participants, illuminated floats, marching bands and special guests roll through Ybor City, tossing beads to the revelers and families that line Seventh Avenue.
The Knight Parade, presented by MOR-TV, is a free, family-friendly event. We encourage attendees to arrive early to avoid traffic and grab dinner at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Ybor City. Then claim your spot along the parade route. If you'd like to ensure a better view of the parade, you can purchase bleacher seats online at www.knightparade.com.
