Gasparilla Parade of Pirates

A beautiful sunny day for a flotilla of costumed pirates to arrive in Tampa Saturday. Midday temperatures were in the low 60’s and it was warmer along Bayshore Boulevard on Saturday. On Monday, Tampa Police confirmed they made 42 arrests, 12 for underage drinking, 7 boating under the influence, 42 misdemeanors, 4 felony arrests and handed out 63 citations for open-containers after a day of pirating in downtown Tampa. The Gasparilla Pirate Fest continued until 10 p.m. with live entertainment and food at Pirate Fest along Ashley Drive. Parking in City of Tampa garages and downtown lots also brought price shock to visitors. With pirates controlling the city, the special event parking fee shot up to $10 to attend the events. City workers cleaned up on Sunday.
