The Gasparilla Parade which marches down Bayshore Boulevard, as well as the Gasparilla "Pyrotechnic" Extravaganza. This 23-minute fireworks display depicts an imaginary sea battle between the pirates of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla and the City of Tampa. Of course, Tampa's favorite "pirates" win again, and their victory clears the way for Tampa's historic Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of Pirates on the following Saturday. For a century, hundreds of colorfully costumed pirates "sail" into downtown Tampa on their pirate ship - the Jose Gasparilla, with canons and pistols blazing, accompanied by a flotilla of hundreds of boats. This is a true spectacle not to be missed.

This Gasparilla Pirate Fest Presented by Bud Light and 101 N. Meridian Apartment Homes, complete with live music at stages located along the Tampa Riverwalk in downtown Tampa. Pirate Fest features live entertainment before and after the parade at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park (at Ashley and Twiggs Street) and MacDill Park (at Ashley and Whiting Street)
