Gasparilla is just around the corner and we are gearing up for a busy weekend in Tampa Bay.

Thanks to our friends at ABC ACTION NEWS for compiling all the information below:

The 2020 Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa Gasparilla Pirate Fest kicks off on Saturday, January 25.

The Gasparilla Invasion will start at 11 a.m. when the world’s only fully-rigged pirate ship, the Jose Gasparilla, sets sail at the south end of Hillsborough Bay and travels north to Seddon Channel to dock at the Tampa Convention Center.

If you have never been, I highly recommend you go and get their early because there are over 300,000 people from around the world who come to enjoy Tampa’s Gasparilla Pirate Fest.

The Parade of the Pirates begins at 2 p.m. at Bay to Bay Boulevard and Bayshore Boulevard. It will continue along Bayshore Boulevard to Brorein Street turning east on Brorein Street and then north on Ashley Drive. The parade will end at Cass Street and Ashley Drive. The parade is FREE to attend.

You can purchase reserved seating here.
