One of the best parts of Tampa,FL besides the weather is the annual invasion of Gasparilla. This event which goes back to 1904, when a few of the city's elite first put on pirate outfits and invaded the city, is now a huge street party and pirade which is held on different days. This year the Childrens' pirade was on the Saturday the 19th and the full pirade will be Saturday the 24 of January. The Pirade will start with the Invasion of Tampa by the famouse pirate ship as well as anyone who would like to invade along with them. Hundreds of boats will come up seddon Channel and the best place to see them is Davis Island or Harbour Island if you know someone. After that the pirade will start and the pirates will come up Bayshore through downtown. It is definatley not something to miss. It is the perfect time to come down to Tampa and spend a few days to see if it is the place for you! For more info See http://www.gasparillapiratefest.com/
