Gasparilla an all day Pirate Party starting on Saturday January 24th is on its way. Named famously after Gaspar, “last of the Buccaneers”, Gasparilla is a massive gathering of people all over the Tampa Bay area.
With the great number of people going to the parade and festivities you can definatley be assured a great time. Alfonso Carfagno a student at the University of Tampa imagines “the party starts as soon as you wake up.” ” My roomates and I are planning to wak up at 7am to start joing the event.” A tall order for an all day event but he seems to be determined to have a good time.
Many students from South Florida and the University of Tampa will be flocking the bay. “Everyone better be in costumes.” says Carfagno planning on wearing a suit resembling the famous Disney pirate Captain Jack Sparrow.
So grab ye’ shillings from the treasure chest, walk out the door with peg legs and get skervy while joining in on what will be a fantastic time to act as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
