Yaaaargh! Tampa Pirate Festival!

To all the Tampa restaurant owners and future Tampa restaurant owners in the place with style and grace, please allow me to talk about the fine annual and special events that go down in your vibrant city of Tampa.

Perhaps the most well known and anticipated events are those from Tampa’s annual celebration of “Gasparilla”, particularly the Gasparilla Pirate Festival, a mock pirate invasion held since 1904 in late January or early February. Often referred to as Tampa’s “Mardi Gras”, the invasion flotilla led by the pirate ship, Jose Gasparilla, and subsequent parade draw over 400,000 attendees, contributing tens of millions of dollars to the city’s economy. Beyond the initial invasion, numerous Gasparilla festivities take place each year between January and March, including the Gasparilla Children’s Parade, the more adult-oriented Sant’Yago Knight Parade, the Gasparilla Distance Classic, Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, and the Gasparilla International Film Festival, among other pirate themed events.
Other notable events include the Outback Bowl, which is held New Year’s Day at Raymond James Stadium. Each February, The Florida State Fair brings crowds from across the state, while “Fiesta Day” celebrates Tampa’s Cuban, German, Italian, African-Cuban, Jewish and Spanish immigrant heritage. In April the MacDill Air Fest entertains as one of the largest military air shows in the U.S.. Guavaween, a nighttime street celebration infuses Halloween with the Latin flavor of Ybor City. Ybor also hosts “GaYbor Days”, an annual street party in the GLBT-friendly GaYbor district. The Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, held annually since 1989, is the city’s largest film festival event, and one of the largest independent gay film festivals in the country.
I bet the Tampa restaurants make a killing during one of these events.
