The Knight Parade, hosted by the Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago, is the largest illuminated parade in the southeast. Its history dates back to the 1970s.
Thousands of participants from Tampa Bay area krewes join the Knights each year. This year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take top billing as the grand marshal, along with special guest The Glazer Family Foundation.
The parade rolls down Ybor City’s Seventh Avenue starting at 7 p.m. on Feb. 11. Revelers should arrive early to get a good spot along the route as they fill up fast, or purchase bleacher seats online.
