Tommy Middaugh of Travel to Go recommends the upcoming Tampa Pirate festival that kids and adults love to attend each year.

Tommy Middaugh of Travel To Go can be considered one of the top members of the travel fulfillment industry, offering vacationers from around the globe the experience of luxury during the winter season. The opportunity to be treated to a decadent trip for a fraction of the price, all while enjoying a variety of different amenities and activities, is something everyone will enjoy.

This winter, Tommy Middaugh invites travelers to get away from cooler weather and head to the sunshine state, also known as Florida, for Tampa’s exciting Gasparilla Pirate Fest starting at the end of January.

For those who have never been before, many wonder what exactly the festival is all about. Tommy Middaugh of Travel to Go shares that the residents of Tampa and visitors from all around the world truly make this festival a fun one filled with tradition, history and of course a lot of excitement. The festival is named after the legendary pirate Jose Gaspar, one of the last original Buccaneers, who was one of the pirate groups that lived on the coastal waters of Florida during the 18th and 19th century. This week-long event is perfect for all those who love a party, one that some say even rivals New Orleans Mardi Gras festivities. There is one day where the celebration turns into what is called a pirate invasion, a rowdy event that involves a parade and street party for all those who want to turn up in their pirate gear and show off their swords.

Tommy Middaugh shares that adults and children alike will enjoy spending time at this unique festival that started all the way back in 1904. The city-wide celebration might be over 110 years old, but that doesn’t mean it is any less fun that it was when it began. Legends of Gaspar’s buried treasure still circulate around the city, so maybe someone will be lucky enough to take it home since it has still never been found.

Tommy Middaugh, Travel To Go Vice President, knows that travelers who spend time in Florida will truly enjoy dressing up in a pirate costume and participating in all the different events that take place during this time. Florida offers many fun things to do so after the festival; stick around and enjoy relaxing on the beach a few days as well.
