Gasparilla Weekend 2017

Call Downtown Yellow Taxi for your safe ride to the parade this Gasparilla weekend!

Gasparilla weekend is here! This yearly event is a Tampa Bay tradition, and attracts huge crowds from around the state of Florida and beyond. The pirate invasion begins at 11:30 am at the south end of Hillborough Bay, sails north between Davis Island and Harbour Island, and lands at the Tampa Convention Center at 1 pm. The parade begins at 2 pm, beginning at Bay to Bay Boulevard and Bayshore Boulevard and then down Bayshore Boulevard. And while there are a number of parking lots near the parade, the fees, as always, will be steep, and the police will be towing cars parked in designated No Parking zones.

If you aren’t sailing in with the pirates, call Downtown Yellow Taxi for a safe ride this Gasparilla weekend. We can get you there safely, without the hassles of finding a parking spot or paying crazy prices for the privilege. Call us at 727 379-4440, and save our number in your phone. We’ll help insure that your Gasparilla weekend is safe and enjoyable!
