On March 15, downtown Naples will run green when the thirty-eighth annual Naples St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns. Produced by the Naples St. Patrick Foundation, the annual parade is the largest privately funded parade in Florida, drawing more than 40,000 people to the streets of downtown Naples to celebrate Irish heritage. The parade begins on 3rd Street South at 11 a.m., making its way north to 5th Avenue South, then making a hard right down 8th Street South to its final destination at Crayton Cove. At 9:30 a.m. there will be a traditional flag raising at Crayton Cove, kicking off the parade.
- The parade is free to attend.
