Gasparilla Pirate FestSaturday 1/29
On Saturday, January 29, at 11:30 A.M., the only fully-rigged pirate ship in the world, the Jose Gasparilla, emerges at the south end of Hillsborough Bay followed by hundreds if not thousands of boats. The vibrant Gasparilla Flotilla then makes its way across Hillsborough Bay and into Seddon Channel (between Davis Island & Harbour Island) and the Gasparilla Invasion has begun!
Victory parade begins at 2 p.m. at Bay to Bay and Bayshore. The 4.5 mile Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates, which has been presented by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla annually since 1904, winds its way along Hillsborough Bay into downtown Tampa, with over 140 units – featuring one-hundred three (103) floats, three (5) marching bands and over fifty (50) participating social organizations (i.e. krewes).
Free community event and parade with some ticketed parties.
