There will be floats, fire engines, school groups, bands, dance troupes, boy and girl scouts and civic groups making their way up 3rd Street and down 5th Ave South for this annual tradition in Naples! Wear green and festive attire and be prepared to catch candy, beads, and other goodies from parade participants! This is always a VERY popular event and parking/space for seating along the street, goes very quickly. Everything is first-come, first-serve. No saving and no reservations.
***Just a reminder to patrons that to keep the parade traveling smoothly and to keep it on time, please do not interfere with the floats and run out into the street. Parade-goers will be tossing out goodies and treats into the crowd but if something happens to land in the street, please leave it there until the parade has concluded. This is for your safety.
A little over 40 years ago a group of fun-loving Neapolitans 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. The Parade 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 Foundation has donated over $200,000 to local high school bands and scholarships in the last five years.
