The Gasparilla festival is probably the largest single annual event in the Tampa Bay area.
The saturday boat parade is the largest boat parade on the west coast of Florida. It has the pirate theme and there is an official parade of boats, and NSS Pattam has been an official boat in the parade. The official parade has just under twenty boats, but all the boats add up to thousands, and it is a very festive an piraty occasion.
Most official parade participants wear appropriate costumes, and we are no exception, but it is not mandatory.
As part of the official parade NSS Pattam also gets dock space by the Tampa Convention Center, which makes it convenient for our guests to participate in all the various on land events and crazy happenings.
