It's Gasparilla Season!
Did you know that the Tampa Firefighters Museum is a staging area for participants in the annual Tampa Gasparilla Parade? Each year we welcome our local krewes to hold their fundraisers, pre-parade celebrations, and after-parties at the Museum. This year our calendar is full and we look forward to hosting the Krewe of St. Florian Fundraiser!
Gasparilla gets bigger and better each year, which is why keeping our city safe is top priority. Here are some tips to keep your Gasparilla celebrations a positive and fun one to remember!
- See Something, Say Something: Police officers will be stationed along the route. You can also call the Tampa Police Department non-emergency line at (813) 231-6130. In the event of an emergency, dial 911.
- Take a Photo of Your Party: This will help law enforcement officers quickly identify your party members by their pirate garb in the instance someone gets separated from your group.
- Drinking and Wet Zone Map: During the Gasparilla Pirate Fest (Jan 25) wet zones will be established along the parade route and in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. Consuming alcohol on public property outside these wet zones is prohibited. There is Zero Tolerance for underage alcohol consumption and disruptive behavior. Please drink responsibly.
