Time for the invasion of pint-sized pirates in Tampa

It's the invasion of the pint-sized pirates in Tampa.

This Saturday, Tampa's iconic Gasparilla festivities begin with the annual Children's Parade along Bayshore Boulevard.

It's alcohol-free, a rule that is strictly enforced for patrons and participants.  You also won't hear those cap guns fired during the big Gasparilla Parade and pirate invasion, which is next Saturday the 26th.

This Saturday, parade-goers can take a shuttle from the Fort Brooke parking garage in downtown Tampa to the beginning of the parade route at Bayshore and Bay to Bay Boulevards.  It's free for kids, but $10 for adults.  

There's also the Jolly Roger Trolley that will make a continuous loop from Platt Street and Rome Avenue.  It's free.

The day's events start at 11 a.m..  The parade begins at 3:30.  The day ends with the Piratechnic fireworks show at 7 p.m. off of Bayshore at Howard Avenue.
