Float in the Gasparilla Carnival parade in Tampa.
The name and foundation of Tampa's traditional Gasparilla Carnival come from legendary pirate Jose Gaspar, "last of the Buccaneers," who terrorized the coastal waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th century. The carnival has been celebrated almost every year since 1904.
