Are you ready for a pirate party? Tampa, FL hosts a weeks long Gasparilla celebration every year! Typically held in January, Gasparilla attracts thousands of party goers. The children’s parade happens the week prior to the main event of the pirate festival, as the main parade gets quite rowdy. Krewes from all over the state prepare for this event all year in anticipation of the pirate invasion along Bayshore Blvd in downtown Tampa. It’s the perfect excuse for adults to dress up and have tons of fun. Gasparilla is sponsored by Seminole Hardrock and features several local vendors and musical performances throughout the event, so be sure to check it out!

If you’re planning your own swashbuckling celebration we can help with our own crew of pirates, mermaids, and more! Face painting is a popular request for themed events, and we’ve even had our caricature artist draw up a few pirate’s portraits for past events! Contact us to tell us about your event and we can suggest the perfect entertainers for your celebration.
