It's Gasparilla Arts time

Here's our preview of all this month's fests, from film to art to music to GASP!

March is the month in which we do all the cool, creative, often-outdoors Gasparilla art-fest things here in Tampa Bay, and Curtis Hixon fills up weekend after weekend with worthwhile stuff to do, listen to and look at while local, indie and big Hollywood films roll at Muvico Centro Ybor and Tampa Museum of Art gets crazy. This week, CL provides you with a comprehensive preview of all things Gasparilla Arts Month, from the Gasparilla International Film Festival and Gasparilla Festival of the Arts to Gasparilla International Food Festival and Gasparilla Music Festival. Man, that is a lot of Gasparillas — plus CL's own GASP!, the mini-fringefest that closes out the month.

Check out these great guides from our critics, staff and contributors, and make sure you get out and get some culture on the Tampa side of the Howard Frankland this month.
