Was Gasparilla the kick off to the parade season that we expected? It was that and a whole lot more! Wow! What a beginning to the 2023 season. Still so much ahead of us, but a fantastic start. Congratulations and many thanks to Bob Hill and his Gasparilla committee. Thanks to all that contributed so much supporting the float, the music, the food, the drink, the venue, the beads and most of all the comradery that brings us all together for so much fun. The Friday night White Party got us off to a great start and everyone rallied their energy for a super parade. See you all in two weeks at the DeSoto Knight Parade. Rest up, it going to be another big day.
