Event Details



KREWE OF ITALIA GUEST PROGRAM *** GASPARILLA CHILDREN'S PARADE

The Krewe of Italia invites a limited number of guests to bring their children to join the Krewe on its float for the Gasparilla Children's Parade. Guests must be invited by a member of the Krewe in good standing, pay a $25 Guest Fee (which entitles the Adult Guest and up to 2 children to participate in the parade), and agree to the Krewe’s Release and Hold Harmless Agreement.

ALL PARTICIPATING ADULTS MUST SIGN A RELEASE/HOLD HARMLESS FORMS AND OBTAIN WRISTBANDS IN ADVANCE OF THE PARADE.

1.  The Krewe will provide bus transportation to and from the parade. Please arrive at the Italian Club between 1:00 -  1:30 p.m. to check in, sign necessary waivers, and receive the required wristbands for participation. The bus will begin boarding at 1:45 and the bus will leave promptly at 2:00 to ensure access to the staging area. There is parking available for a fee behind Gaspar’s Grotto, next door to the Italian Club. If you are using alternate transportation, keep in mind that no private vehicles will be allowed into the staging area and if you are participating in the parade, you must be at the float no later than 3:00.  We are towards the end of the line up (actually, the very end) so if you are okay walking a short distance to staging, you can have someone drop you off near Gandy and Bayshore BLVD.

2. Everyone participating in the parade must have a Release/Hold Harmless form signed and returned, or have one on file from a previous parade. If you are bringing a guest and/or a child please see the Krewe website for a form.  Wristbands for parade participants will be given prior to boarding the bus at the Italian Club. If you are using other transportation to the parade, you will need to coordinate getting the wristbands thru your Krewe Member Sponsor.   For security purposes, adults without wristbands will not be admitted into the controlled staging area.  This is a Children's Parade rule and they will allow no exceptions.

3. The Parade begins at 3:30 p.m. and will end at approximately 6:30 p.m. Krewe of Italia is float number 98(this may change) of 110 + units in the parade. We will be staged on Bayshore Blvd., near Fair Oaks Dr. Due to our parade position number, we expect to cross the parade finish line around 6:00 p.m. The parade route is about 1.5 miles long (after the staging area) and will end at Edison and Bayshore. The pickup area is at Platt and Bayshore.

4. The Krewe does not supply beads - you will need to bring your own beads and they must be unboxed/in bags.

5.  ATTIRE FOR THE PARADE:  All participants must wear a Krewe t-shirt (or a red t-shirt if you do not have a Krewe t-shirt) and black pants/black jeans.  We will have children's shirts available at the club prior to boarding the bus and at staging for those not riding the bus from the Italian Club.  If you have a Krewe shirt from a prior event/parade, please wear and/or bring with you as our quantity and available sizes are limited

6.  Krewe members may bring their children at no cost. If you are not a Krewe of Italia member, the guest fee is  $25.00.  The guest fee covers up to 2 children and one adult. A limited number of these tickets are available. Hot dogs, snacks, soft drinks, and water will be provided. Krewe Members bringing children do not need to purchase tickets but should RSVP at the Krewe website so that we can get a proper headcount. 

7. For safety reasons, children under 2 are not allowed to participate. It will be a long day, with loud music, people screaming, beads are thrown (sometimes not so well), and weather may or may not be in our favor etc.  Although this is a children's parade, please consider your child's limits.  All children ages 3 to 10 must stay on the float at all times during the parade route.  For everyone's safety, no one may exit or board the moving float during the parade route.  

8.  THIS IS AN ALCOHOL-FREE EVENT. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
