Gasparilla Pirate Festival

0 Reviews

The Gasparilla Pirate Festival is a large parade with a host of events held in Tampa, Florida.  

This festival is a must-see and is complete with a children's extravaganza and a much more adult-oriented night festival later in the week. 

Besides the main Parade of Pirates, there is a children's parade, film festival, music festival, an art festival and a road race.

The main event is the Gasparilla Invasion or the reenactment of the historic pirate invasion of Tampa, led by Jose Gasparilla.  Visitors get to see the only fully-rigged pirate ship in the world, followed by hundreds to thousands of boats!  They then continue with the 4.5-mile Parade of Pirates, composed of more than a hundred elaborate floats, 5 marching bands and of course, the swashbuckling pirates!
