Aloha Friday, Pirates are Invading


Tonight, I'll be getting my costume ready for tomorrow. Tomorrow is the Gasparilla Pirate Invasion. Gasparilla is a Tampa tradition since 1904. Last week was the Children's parade and tomorrow is the "main event." The city will be invaded by a flotilla of pirates in the morning, and then the parade of pirates in the afternoon, followed by a street festival downtown.

This is my town nananananana (Montgomery Gentry)

My Aloha Friday question of the week is:

What tradition does your city/town have?

  1. Our town has no traditions - the one draw-back to living in such a small town! Have FUN tomorrow! :)

  3. The town we live close by (we live in the extreme boondocks) has a parade for Everything. And I do mean Everything.

    Have fun! It sounds like a blast.

  9. That sounds like so much fun. I know my friend is going to it and I can not wait to see her photos. I can not think of anything that big that is done around here.
