Ahoy Matey's! Its Gasparilla time!

The entire Tampa Bay area is polishing their swords, counting their doubloons and getting ready for a party that rivals Mardi Gras! Gasparilla is in the air!

In the latter parts of the 1700's, the seas were fraught with pirates and one of note was Jose Gaspar! Every year, Tampa celebrates this notorious pirate with parades, marathons, parties and overall debauchery!

So pour yourself some rum, sit back and enjoy pictures of past invasions...

Shiver me timbers! Arggghhh!
