Krewe of Venus Lights It Up in the Sant 'Yago Knight Parade & Rough Riders St Patrick's Parade

Our two night parades of the 2015 Gasparilla season were the Sant' Yago Illuminated Knight Parade on Valentine's Day February 14th and the Rough Riders St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 14th both through the streets of Ybor.

"The evening parades allow for a festive light display and the Krewe of Venus floats are adorned with a glow that highlights our Venus statue as well as our royal court," shared Brandt Cosgrove, Krewe of Venus President.  "As our motto is for this year.....Don't stop the party!"

Many of the Krewe of Venus members were adorned with red valentine heart beads for the Sant' Yago Knight Parade.

"My husband and I love celebrating this day traditionally known for lovers by sharing with the Tampa Bay community," says a smiling Lucille Clark.  "We give out many of these heart shaped beads with royal crowns as well."

Tampa set the mood for the Rough Riders St. Patrick's Night Parade by making the river green for the festivities.  Krewe of Venus members tossed green beads to the enthusiastic crowd.  Go Green was the theme!
