The Sant' Yago Knight Parade, is one of a series of events in the Gasparilla Pirate Festival. The parade is held annually in the historic neighborhood of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida and is organized by the Knights of Sant'Yago, one of the local "Krewes" that participate in Gasparilla-related events and raise money for various causes and charities.[1] It is sometimes referred to as the "Gasparilla Night Parade".[2]

The event features illuminated floats and takes place annually one Saturday evening in February and runs into the early morning hours. The event was founded in 1972 by The Krewe of the Knights of Sant'Yago which has hosted the event each year since. It typically takes place a week or two after the main Gasparilla Parade of Pirates and is considered the more "adult-oriented" of the two parades.
