If you’re a true Tampa local then you know the feeling. It’s similar to Christmas Eve, but instead of a fat man down a chimney, we've got a pirate marauding his way down the street! Our internal clocks are ticking and we can feel Gasparilla getting closer! The only Friday night of the year you'll want to be in bed early is forthcoming, and so is the day we've been preparing for since a mere 364 days ago.
Bring thy rum (or tequila or whatever, but preferably rum) for our favorite holiday of the year. For those of you in a krewe, fire the beads high and far, and stay safe on the boats if ye' invadin' this Gasparilla on Saturday!
