The annual Anna Maria Island St. Patrick's Day Parade was another splendid success for /2017. First conceived in 1999 by the most famous restaurant owner on Anna Maria Island Beach Bistro owner Thomas W. “Sean” Murphy. Mr. Murphy said the parade started in a conversation over beer at the Beach Bistro bar 19 years ago.


“We were all sitting around like a bunch of Irishmen do on St. Patrick’s Day telling lies about all the great parades we had never been in on St. Patrick’s Day and we decided, well, what the heck, let’s have our own, so that’s what we did,” Murphy said.


Over the years, the parade has grown to become the largest St. Patrick’s Day parade “south and east of Savannah, Georgia. It may also be the only St. Patrick’s parade south and east of Savannah, Georgia,” according to Murphy. Previous parades featured an appearance by “Judy” the circus elephant, who died last year. This year, the parade will feature her longtime companion, “Mr. Bones” the camel.

Hi, I am Terry, my wife Sandy (who writes our blogs) are the caring, hands on owners and managers of Anna Maria Condo Rentals. We’ve been here for years, so we know Anna Maria Island, the island’s condos, and our island’s guests. We understand you – what you need, what you want, and what you’d really like to have. With us, every stay balances the rigorous requirements of professional managers with the enthusiasm, pride and personal touches of an owner-managed rental. That means that with us, you enjoy the dual benefits of an in-the-know local combined with the professionalism and expertise of a serious company. Come on down and experience the difference for yourself. Our family fell in love with Anna Maria Island the first time we visited in 1989. Every summer since, we’ve spent our vacations on this island, and in 1995, we bought our first condo here. Having a young family at the time meant we had to rent our condo to offset ownership costs. Thankfully, by offering luxurious accommodations at an affordable price, we were able to keep the condo booked for an average of 50 weeks a year. These steady bookings allowed us to purchase our second condo in 2013, and a third in 2014. While opening up these homes has allowed us to keep returning to the island—and even better, to a house that feels like home—we also truly enjoy offering a place to guests to discover Anna Maria Island and feel at home here, too.
