St Davids Day Parade
Where better to celebrate good St David’s Day than in the heavenly village city of St Davids on the North Pembrokeshire coast, once home to the patron saint of Wales. Magnificent St Davids Cathedral stands in splendour on the site of an original 6th century monastery and has been a place of pilgrimage for many hundreds of years.
A busy schedule of events has been planned with the highlight being a Dragon Parade from Oriel y Parc at 11 am. Over 300 people with 15 individual dragons will parade down the High Street and around Cross Square before heading back to the courtyard at the Centre in time to see the sun lighting the St David’s Day stone at precisely 12 midday.
If you are lucky enough to have chosen to stay in one of St Davids holiday cottages you are in for a treat. If you are anywhere else in Wales you won’t be far from some sort of St Davids Day celebrations. Do go along and join in the fun.
