The office of Tampa Mayor Jane Castor announced plans for a new Gasparilla parade sign challenge with a chance to score some piratey prizes.
“Parade-goers are invited to decorate their signs with “Castor’s Krewe” for a chance to catch the Mayor’s eye along the parade route—and possibly some special pirate booty too,” says a press release. “Posters should be fun, creative, and pirate-y to reflect the spirit of Gasparilla.”
The challenge is good for both the Children’s and Day parade. Anyone interested is also encouraged to share their signs on social media using #CastorsKrewe.
No details on exactly what the “special pirate booty,” entails, but we’re guessing it has something to do with beads.
Last month, Castor unveiled her #BeadFreeBay campaign to promote sustainability and waste reduction during the upcoming Gasparilla Festival.
The main Gasparilla parade will take place on January 25, while the much more wholesome kids parade happens January 18.
