The City of Tampa, Florida Was Invaded By Pirates On Saturday! A Brief Introduction

Hey Fellow Bloggers,

This post will be the first of a series of 5 posts where I’ll take you through all the the events that I attended on this past Saturday in the City of Tampa in celebration of Gasparilla. This is the biggest event in Tampa that occurs annually on the last Saturday of each January. It brings in over 300,000 spectators to enjoy the day’s spectacular festivities.

The you tube video I’ve attached will give you a quick overview about “Gasparilla”…a annual Tampa Tradition. This past Saturday was the 115th “Gasparilla” celebration.

My 5 part series of blogs will provide you some fun videos and colorful photos that I took throughout the day as I experienced my very first “Gasparilla” event !

The Titles of My Series of 5 Blogs will be as follows:

Part 1: The City of Tampa Was Invaded by Pirates on Saturday…A Brief Introduction

Part 2: The Pre-Invasion Gathering…They Have Pirate Heritage In Their Blood !

Part 3: Preparation of The Pirate Ship for The Invasion

Part 4: The Actual Pirate Invasion of Tampa

Part 5: The Post-Invasion Victory Party and Gasparilla Parade

I hope you enjoy these blogs and find them interesting.
