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 think it's time for a mid year/"halfway to Gasparilla" type celebration. Maybe somewhere between June and August. After the St. Patty's parade things get quiet and we all start jonesing for that last Saturday in January again. Hell some of us already are lol

Gasparilla is with Shaun White and Team USA.

Had a great time at Gasparilla parade. Only thing is I just wish there was a shorter route to Bayshore Blvd from Swann and Howard Aves. Because I have arthritis in both knees. But besides that I had a great time see you pirates and wenches next year.

Integrating the Stanley Cup, huge Lightning fan!!!!

"All a dream?" Tell that to my throbbing feet. Jajaja! Great time with great people on a great day.

Here's me after the Gasparilla parade.

Being there with my sister and my daughter! And the perfect weather!

From start to finish...... Everything !

#sirens

Good times! #CaptainMorgan #Titos

Here's my 1st drink of the day.

The handsome pirates! 🙂

All over again 2019 come quick please‼️

Hoist the colors
