The Gasparilla celebration continued in Downtown Tampa, as "pirates" took over Bayshore Boulevard.
The tradition attracted thousands of fans for food, fun and floats.
The parade attracted more than a hundred entrants.
Some Gasparilla goers tell Fox 13 their favorite part is getting beads.
"Gasparilla is like Mardi Gras if you don't get beads you didn't celebrate correctly," one attendee
A number of people have been arrested during the Saturday festivities.
Tampa Police report they have made three felony arrests, 7 arrests for boating under the influence and 63 open-container citations.
