TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Hundreds of pirates invaded the city of Tampa Saturday during the Gasparilla Invasion.
More than 750 swashbucklers invaded Tampa Bay aboard “Jose Gasparilla,” the only fully-rigger pirate ship in the world.
After the ship docked at the Tampa Convention Center, Mayor Jane Castor surrendered the Key to the City to the Captain of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla.
