Hi Tampa Bay, Alex here to share with you the stage talent for the 2012 Seminole Hardrock Gasparilla Street Festival in downtown Tampa.

I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the pirates arrival in Tampa Bay, but what you may not know is the festivities begin before the pirates invade and capture the City – and they’ll continue until long after the last pirate has paragasparilladed through the streets! 

The 2012 Pirate Fest Street Festival features stages with live entertainment, food and fun. Admission to Tampa’s Gasparilla festivities, including all Pirate Fest concerts is free.
