Gasparilla attracts a lot of spectators from all over the country. There will be hundreds of thousands of people present especially for the Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of Pirates.
If you want to get the full Gasparilla experience, then you have to be there early.
If you're coming with your crew, it would be best to travel on a party bus. At L3 Limo, we can pick everyone from their houses, go to Gasparilla, and then drive everyone back home.
You don't have to worry about the traffic and finding a parking space. You can also bring as many foods as you want on the bus.
That way you don't have to go food searching in the middle of a huge crowd.
