The Children’s Gasparilla Parade has been a part of Tampa’s Gasparilla celebration since 1947. This family-friendly parade takes place along Bayshore Boulevard from Bay to Bay Boulevard, moving north to Edison Avenue. Bayshore Blvd., known as the longest sidewalk in the world, is 4 1/2 miles long and runs along Tampa Bay.
The Children’s Gasparilla Parade traditionally hosts more than 125 entry units, including krewes, marching bands, dance groups, school performance teams, and community organizations. Parade applications are open to the public!
