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

Has anyone attempted to see if Tampa could break The Guinness World Record for Most Pirates in one Place? I know we would beat out the Guys Across The Pond! According the the rules you only have to have a minimum of 2 pirate articles. Like an eye patch, sword etc. I believe the record is 14, 231 Pirates.

Cannot wait! Missing Tampa so much!

We could go back...alone

Yes..I'm ready 💀 💀 💀 💀 💀

Alex Angelos ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Sure will!

missing this......

Thank you 😁

When I was a kid in the 60s, Gasparilla was held on Monday and it was a school holiday.
