Festival de San Augustin 

Celebrating the 500th Birthday of Pedro Menendez de Aviles, founder of Saint Augustine. Starting with the Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Statue of Pedro Menendez in front of the Lightner. Saturday afternoon reenactors in sixteenth-century attire keep both the City’s history and traditions alive. Even the papier-mâché heads came out for the Paseo along St. George Street from the City Gate to the Plaza de la Constitución. Noche de Festival (a Spanish tradition of a Paseo) was held later at the Fountain of Youth. Guests got to taste of City’s Spanish heritage, traditional music, and a dinner of Spanish Paella.
