Picture this: a sea of glittering beads, treasures, and doubloons being tossed into the air as a crew of pirates celebrate their victory over the City of Tampa. The legendary Gasparilla Parade of Pirates is no ordinary celebration. As the Captain and his Krewe parade along the 4.5-mile route, you’ll witness approximately 140 units of elaborate floats, Krewes, marching bands, and, of course, the infamous YMKG pirates! You won’t want to miss Tampa’s signature Gasparilla event.
