Gasparilla Invasion

From the City of Tampa site, http://www.tampagov.net, we have a photo of a typical beginning to the annual Gasparilla Day Invasion with the pirate ship entering the city. The exact page is http://www.tampagov.net/about_Tampa/feature_events/Gasparilla/index.asp.

The invasion first began in 1904 on horseback and then switched to the sea in 1911.ญญ
