993710_623672111010655_771187554_nThe World's Oldest and Largest Pirate Festival and Parade has been a fixture in Central Florida life for over 110 years.  

Boasting over 110 units and 500,000 happy revelers along Tampa's Bayshore Boulevard each year, the Gasparilla Pirate Festival is a spectacle to behold.  

The parade is preceded by an actual sea borne invasion of the city of Tampa by the Pirate Ship Jose Gasparilla, manned by her bloodthirsty crew of Scallywags known as Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla.  The Pirate Ship is escorted by thousands of local pirate vessels and ships into the narrow and treacherous channels of the Hillsborough River.  Truly a one of a kind event, not to be missed and the 3rd Largest Parade in the United States.  

Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla has been sponsoring and operating this event since 1904 but there are many other Krewes and the City of Tampa to thank for putting on a great show as well. 

By last tally, 91 Krewes are Involved in the Gasparilla Pirate Festival Each Year:Invasion-Aerial-gaspar-450

I experienced it for the first time last January, we had so much fun, will be back in 2018. Already have our plane tickets.

Ryan Rosenkranz I think you really need to make a trip down next year to celebrate the festival of your people.

Arrr does mean I agree, I'm happy. But you left out Arrrrr which means I disagree, I'm unhappy.
