GASPARILLA CHILDREN’S DAY PARADE
The Children’s Gasparilla Parade has been a part of Tampa’s Gasparilla celebration since 1947. This family-friendly parade takes place along Bayshore Boulevard from Bay to Bay Boulevard, moving north to Edison Avenue. <o:p></o:p>
The Children’s Gasparilla Parade traditionally hosts more than 125 entry units, including krewes, marching bands, dance groups, school performance teams, and community organizations. An alcohol-free event, celebrating the return of The Gasparilla Season to Tampa Bay!
GASPARILLA: A TAMPA TRADITION
Take a dive deep into the history of Tampa’s oldest and most fun-loving community festival. This exhibit explores the uncharted waters of more than 110 years of parades, pirate invasions, coronation balls, and more. Gaze at vintage photographs from 1904 to the present, see memorabilia including invitations and pirate tokens, and marvel at gowns worn by Gasparilla queens and members of their courts. Remains on display through March 5 @ Henry B. Plant Museum UT Campus
MrENC w/ RIOT FOR ROMANCE
Eric Collins, a long term troubadour out of the Lakeland area, has composed numerous LP’s and singles. He is making a stop in Tampa to promote his most recent effort We Do Our Own Thing. The show takes place at Microgroove Records, so think kind of “Tiny Desk” type of venue. Riot for Romance is backing up the show. Happening @ Microgroove Records, Sunday January 22nd 5:00PM Matinee.
