Today we went to the Gasparilla Parade Of Pirates! Unfortunately we missed last weekends parade which is geared towards kids but we still wanted to see what Gasparilla was all about. Its basically one huge party and everyone dresses up like a pirate! The weather was perfect for a parade (especially after all this rain we’ve been having). We walked about 8 miles back and forth to see the parade and festivities. Although we enjoyed our time if you have kids we HIGHLY recommend going the children’s gasparilla parade. Today was definitely geared for adults (lots of drinking and inappropriate music). Luckily we got to the parade early and left before thing got out of hand. We are hoping next year we can watch from our future sailboat!
