My wife Amy and I lost our Gasparilla virginity yesterday. Neither of us being fans of big drunken crowds had since avoided the festivities on Bayshore like the plague. Last year we were invited to attend Mayor Buckhorn’s tent but couldn’t go. Invited again this year, we left the kids with friends and made our way down to Bayshore to attend the annual event. We had a good time people watching. Some photos of the festivities are shown below. Gasparilla wasn’t on our “bucket list” but at least we can now say we’ve done it.
