All the pirates and party people we saw at Gasparilla 2022

Not even Tom Brady could ruin the party on Saturday, as hundreds of thousands of people descended upon Tampa's Bayshore Boulevard and downtown for the first Gasparilla parade of the pandemic era.

"People seemed happy. The sun was shining. People were smiling. Simple stuff," Decker added. Here's all the guyliner and party people we saw.Ray Roa
