This home movie is a production of the Howell family in Tampa, Florida. The title card for this film says "Landing of the Pirate Krew of Gasparilla." It begins with a young boy playing pirate, and then moves to the Gasparilla Festival in Tampa. There are scenes involving a variety of boats and ships in Tampa Bay and many pirates. Downtown parade scenes follow. This is good quality early footage.
