Started way back in 1904, the Gasparilla Pirate Festival & Parade, has been going strong in Tampa, Florida.
Hundreds of thousands of people venture out for the festival and parade and to see the Jose Gasparilla pirate ship.
At 11:30am, the Jose Gasparilla pirate ship laves Hillsborough Bay, sails to the Seldon Channel and at 1pm docks at the Tampa Convention Center.
2pm-5:30pm the Parade of Pirates by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla draws big crowds.
The parade is sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock Tampa.
