Gasparille Pirate Festival 2012 Tampa Bay Florida

The Gasparilla Pirate Festival is set to begin again this weekend in Tampa Florida.

A pirate invasion is planned in Tampa Bay, A Parade of Pirates through the streets, and a Pirate Street Festival all free to the public.
Check out this YouTube video about the event.
Come on out and have some fun.  However, a quick check of the website could not verify if swords and knives as part of your costume are allowed so please check with event coordinators first.
