Gasparilla 2013 of Instagram

Gasparilla took place this past weekend in my hometown of Tampa.  The weekend festival celebrates the buccaneer history of Tampa Bay with a Mardi Gras style parade and a  city-wide pirate invasion. Although I wasn’t able to be there in person this year, I was able to browse some pictures on Instagram which was just as good.

The objective is to asphyxiate yourself with plastic beads.

Ahhh suki suki!!! Where's my neck?! #Gasparilla

Bead swag isn’t just for adults.

Not sure if dubstep concert or Gasparilla.
