It starts with the invasion of the Hillsborough River by a fully rigged three masted pirate ship (manned by a crew of 700 pirates), flags flying and cannon blazing, accompanied by hundreds of pleasure craft. Once the city has “surrendered” there is a ‘Parade of Pirates’ where a procession of floats travel from Bayshore Boulevard to Downtown Tampa. Chains of beads and coins are tossed from the floats to the crowds which can number upwards of 400,000. The week prior to the Festival sees a children’s parade, a fireworks display (The Gasparilla ‘Piratechnic’ Extravaganza) and a series of family activities. In the following weeks Ybor City holds a fiesta day and night time Illuminated Sant’Yago Knight Parade. Downtown Tampa is also the site of fun runs for children, adults and the disabled and there is an annual festival of the arts.
