Gasparilla Pirate Parade - Tampa Bay - Florida

Ahoy, Matey! Bands and Beeze and Boobs Await!

More than 100 years old, this event starts with a pirate ship sailing in from the bay and sending all her crew ashore. Terrified children and tourists then watch the pirates parade down the street. The pirates originally showered the streets with treasure, however these days the treasures are beads and the women obligingly reward the pirates with brief flashes of boobage.

A Proud Parade of Pirates!

After the parade, the street party begins where local bands fill the streets and some of the women continue to show off their breasts for more beads. Most of the real flashing happens during this portion of the event as the daytime parade is more of a family-friendly tradition.

The parade starts at Bay to Bay and Bayshore boulevards and continues along Bayshore to Brorein Street, turns east on Brorein Street, and then north on Ashley Drive. The parade ends at Cass Street & Ashley Drive. Starting time is usually 2:00pm to 5:30pm.

Admission to the event is free, but you should plan to get there a little early if you want to gain an advantageous position along the parade route. The same would apply for parking, but try to avoid parking downtown if you can and take public transit into the area. There are a lot of people around and it would take forever for you to get in and out of there. There is also reserved seating that you can purchase. If interested, please visit their official website for more detailed information.

Vendors are everywhere and you can even purchase beer. Bead availability is unknown, so be safe and bring your own if you plan on participating.


Not only is flashing acceptable at the Gasparilla Pirate Fest, it's encouraged! Many of the women in attendance will GLADLY show their boobs in exchange for beads.


Everyone has a camera these days, and especially the folks turning out to this event as it's a huge public event that even brings tourists to the Tampa area.

Keep in mind that this is a public event and that families with children will be attending. People might not take kindly to having their children in any photos.
