Changing of the Guard St. Augustine, FL
See the Changing of the Guard in Historic Downtown St. Augustine on Saturday, July 25th! The Florida Historic Militia will present a traditional Changing of the Guard. The soldiers guarding the town are dismissed for the night and their replacements arrive to take over guarding the Government House. The commander of the new watch puts the replacement soldiers through a rigorous drill before they take their posts. The retiring soldiers are ordered to clear their weapons with the command of “Disparen!” The resounding blast of musket fire assures 18th century St. Augustine that the changing of the guard has taken place and the town is safe for the night. The Changing of the Guard is from 6:15pm to 7:15pm at the Government House on St. Augustine’s Plaza de la Constitucion (48 King Street). Following the program, the militia will retreat to the Taberno del Caballo (37 St. George Street).
