The Children’s Gasparilla Parade has been a part of Tampa’s Gasparilla celebration since 1947. The Children’s Gasparilla Parade (produced by the City of Tampa’s Recreation Department prior to 2002) takes place along beautiful Bayshore Boulevard and uses part of the same route as the Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates.

NEW IN 2015! The Children’s Gasparilla Parade will begin at Bay to Bay Blvd. & Bayshore Blvd., proceed north along Bayshore, and end at Edison Avenues & Bayshore (approx. 1.7 miles). The Children’s Gasparilla Parade will be broadcast live on FOX 13. Also, as in years past it will be streamed live on

In past years, the Children’s Gasparilla Parade included over 100 units, including krewes, marching bands, dance units, primary and secondary school organizations, community organizations as well as local neighborhood associations. The parade application process is open to the public and the application can be downloaded on the Parade Application page.
