Pirate Garb is welcome and encouraged! Looking to learn more about Gasparilla? See the story below on the history of Jose Gaspar, and the havoc he brought to the coastal waters of West Florida. What is Gasparilla? Jose Gaspar, the man, the myth, and ye' olde legend, was a pirate who terrorized the the coastal waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th century. Dubbing himself "Gasparilla," Gaspar and his band of pirates lived a life of seizing and robbing merchant ships off the Gulf Coast until 1821. Ready to retire from the pirate-lifestyle, Gaspar and his crew decided one last seize before hanging up their tricorns. Unbeknownst to Gaspar, the ship of choice happened to be a U.S. Navy warship in disguise. After a long, hard-fought battle the U.S. Navy ship reigned victorious. Gaspar-enthusiasts met to create the first Gasparilla krewe, "Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla," who would make Gasparilla history by surprising Tampa with a mock pirate attack on the city known as Pirate Invasion today. Plundering Tips: -Only scalawags show up in polo shirt for this. Rock a tricorn hat, wear Navy stripes and huge hoop earrings. Maybe, a peasant blouse? -Use terminology such as: ahoy, matey, walk the plank, jolly roger, and timbers! -Come ready to get a tad squiffy (tipsy) and enjoy live music from Randomonium starting at 7pm.
