Local celebrity who has grown into the fame spotlight has been chosen as this year’s Gasparilla Pirate Fest grand marshal.

You might have seen this name quite a lot in the past few years: Dave Bautista
He will serve as grand marshal along with honorary community hero Lt. Travis Maus of the Tampa Police Department. These two great men will lead the pirate parade on Saturday, January 25th as it strolls down Bayshore Boulevard.

“Dave Bautista and Travis Maus represent some of the best in our Tampa Bay community. Each year, Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla selects accomplished individuals that shine a spotlight on our city and give back to others. Both of these gentlemen exemplify these traits and we look forward to welcoming them in the 2020 Gasparilla Parade of Pirates.”

– Captain Richard Champman of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla

The parade kicks off at 2 p.m. as Bautista and Maus lead more than 100 parade floats, 50 krewes, five marching bands and hundreds of pirates down the four-and-a-half-mile route.
