As a long time supporter of Ybor City and big believer the district will continue to grow and thrive as Tampa evolves, I was please to see how smoothly this year’s Knights of Sant’ Yago Illuminated Knight Parade went.
The Tribune reported there were only three arrests.
As for those hauled off to jail, Tampa police reported only three arrests for minor charges. Today, the police department expects to release an estimate of how big a crowd the parade drew.
This bodes well for the event and district in comparison to the large amount of negative press received by this year’s Gasparilla Day Parade where 141 were arrested.
