Outbound Voyage celebrates end of Gasparilla season


Tampa’s swashbuckling season of pirate parties officially comes to an end Saturday when the Jose Gasparilla ship sails into the sunset.

The Gasparilla Outbound Voyage, hosted by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla, will include an afternoon of celebration and live music at Channelside Bay Plaza, beginning at noon.

Costumed pirates will arrive at 4:30 p.m., and Mayor Mayor Bob Buckhorn will exchange some words with the krewe’s captain and his mates—perhaps asking that they return the key to the city—before the ship fires its cannons one last time for 2014 and sets sail into the bay.

The free party is open to the public.
