Yoho, landlubbers! Looking for thrills from Pass-a-Grille to Tampa Bay? Look no further! Tampa Bay's own rogue patrons Ye Mystic Krewe will be 'attacking' the city with a motley fleet and forcing Tampa's mayor to surrender the key to the city! There will be many pirate floats and treasure in the form of beads and doubloons as well as candy shared with all who come out to watch the spectacle. This annual event remembers actual pirate Jose Gaspar who would terrorize the Gulf Coast before being caught by the United States Navy. Those days are long gone and now all are welcome to join the jolly buccaneers and their crew for fun in the sun in lovely Tampa Bay. Just a short car ride from St Pete Beach, you too can become a pirate, if only for a day! ARRR!
The Gasparailla Parade of Pirates is a free event and more information can be found here: http://gasparillapiratefest.com/main-festival/parade/.
