USA ~Tampa-Gasparilla Pirate Festival ~

A pirate looks so much fun... every January the world’s only fully-rigged pirate ship, the Jose Gasparilla, appears in the waters of Florida with booming cannons and costumed pirates ...visited by more than 400.000 people every year!
Thank you so much Jesus (I'm wondering will you be going too? ^___^)

The Gasparilla Pirate Invasion and Parade has been a Tampa tradition for over 100 years. Named for the legendary pirate, Jose Gaspar (Gasparilla)— the last of the Buccaneers, a Spanish pirate captain who terrorized the coastal waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The theme is an "invasion" by Gasparilla and his men, which begins when the "Krewe" (made up of residents of the city) arrives on a 165' long priate ship, the Jose Gaspar.
