For many, the real excitement of this year's Gasparilla Day Parade meant waiting to see how well the combined forces of Gasparilla organizers and the Tampa Police Department enforced the no-pee zones in the neighborhoods. And they came down hard, too: the St. Pete Times reported that 413 arrests were made during the parade, a dramatic rise over the 127 arrests reported for last year's day parade. After last years town hall meetings brought to light many of the problems of having 300,000-plus people with access to alcohol and residential areas but not necessarily a bathroom during a festival, the police came down hard during the rainy Day Parade. Both the Tampa Tribune and the St. Pete Times published multiple stories, at least one a day since Tuesday, on the challenges bearing down on the event after last years black eye from the residents living by Bayshore. The stories got mostly front-page treatment last week, along with President Obamas trip to Tampa and the 1,001 jokes about the iPad. And readers of The Daily Loaf got to see the whole shebang, umbrellas and all, in the photos of Chip Weiner.
