History of Gasparilla

Gasparilla boats in Tampa bay The history and name of this Tampa tradition traces back to the legendary antics of Jose Gaspar. Gaspar reportedly patrolled the waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A society columnist with the Tampa Tribune is credited with creating a May festival in 1904 that first incorporated a pirate-inspired theme. The original members of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla stormed Tampa on horseback before becoming seaworthy in 1911. The success of those early invasions prompted planners to move the celebration to its winter time slot and encouraged the creation of additional events.
