Description
This film shows the Gasparilla Celebration, which began in 1904, as it was done in the 1950s. The pirates invade and a wonderfully colorful event follows. Businessmen are made up as pirates and lose all inhibitions as they participate in the parades and pageants. Emmett Kelly, as Weary Willie, appears in the film and an amphibious tank escorts the ship into the harbor. A high-wire artist walks between the ship's masts. This was filmed in Kodachrome.
