The St. Augustine Garrison and The Colonial Quarter recreate the historic Night Watches in Spanish colonial garrison towns.

Activities begin at the Castillo de San Marcos with a flag raising at 9 a.m. It continues in the Colonial Quarter from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and will feature Spanish, French, British and Native American re-enactors portraying events of colonial St. Augustine from 1739 through 1784.

The Colonial Night Watch will culminate with a Torch Light Parade at 7 p.m. which begins at the Castillo de San Marcos and travels down St. George Street to the Governor’s House where parade participants and visitors will be greeted by a speech at the Governor’s House, followed by a “Volley of Joy” and singing of Christmas carols.
