A New Gasparilla? Seriously?
After citizens and neighborhoods complained about the drinking and rowdiness of Gasparlla parade-goers in past years, the event organizers, Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla and representatives of the city of Tampa and the Tampa Police instituted new rules about underage drinking and open containers. They also added hundreds and hundreds of Porta Potties in locations that should prove very advantageous - to homeowners and the general public - the total is now over 1,500. I hope the Gasparilla boat invasion, Parade of the Pirates and street festival is safe and super fun for all. (Sorry that the weather isn't cooperating...stay away rain!!)
