• Short Summary

    People of Tampa in Florida hold a carnival to commemorate the pirate ship 'Gasparilla'.

  • Description

    Tampa, Florida, United States of America.

    Various shots of a pirate ship - the Gasparilla - in Tampa Bay. On board we see pirates standing on the masts and drinking on deck. Good shot of one pirate squirting booze from a flask into the mouth of another man. The pirates come ashore and 'force' the mayor to hand over the key of the city to the Pirate King and his wife. We then see more pirates on carnival floats moving through the city streets in a procession. Large crowds watch the fun.
