A long time Tampa Bay Exclusive tradition is upon us again. “Gasparilla 2013”

Every year the “Krewes” of pirates, thieves, and misfits gather to invade the streets of Bayshore Blvd. and downtown Tampa for a month long extravaganza.

This invasion has been a Tampa Bay tradition since 1904 and gets bigger and better every year. This year you can find our very own Nikki Cruz at the Publix on Platt Street, and Mason Dixon along with Bobby Rich hosting the annual Gasparilla Distance Classic, and me (Flash) making the crowd lose their mind for beads and coins on board the ship belonging to “The Krewe of Blackbeard’s Revenge”. In fact this is band of Gypsies and Marauders are my Krewe family, so look for us in all of the parades crankin’ out 10,000 watts of Q105 on the loud speakers.

Check out this video of the history of Gasparilla and how it became an institution in our area. It is quite the tale, and look for us along the parade route as we “Surrender our Q105 Booty”
