The Beach Bistro will host the Beach Bistro’s 14th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Anna Maria Island. The parade is scheduled to start at 4 p.m., beginning at Holmes Beach City Hall, 5801 Marina Drive, in Holmes Beach, and ending on North Palm Drive and 78th Street. Parade participants should assemble at 2 p.m. at City Hall. The parade is free and open to the public, and Anna Maria Island residents (Irish or otherwise) are invited to participate. The slow-strolling parade attracts upwards of 15,000 celebrants each year and features area marching bands, pipe bands, musicians and colorful floats. Parade Marshalls will be World War II veterans Mr. Sam Castelli and Mr. Jim Gabaree. As ever, this year’s favorite participant is Judy the Parade Elephant, led by her companion of more than 40 years, Mr. Bones. Her sometimes co-star is Omar the camel.
