Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition 

When: Jan. 11-Feb. 17 2013
Go back in time to pirate parties of Tampa's past with Krewe of Gasparilla memorabilia — coronation robes, ball invitations, programs, crowns and costumes as well as vintage photographs of the invasion, parade floats, pirates and royal courts. The exhibit includes a 1950s princess gown designed by Anne Lowe, an African-American fashion designer from Tampa who's famous for her one-of-a-kind Gasparilla dresses. She later designed and made Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy’s wedding gown and bridesmaids dresses. Film footage from the 1920s, "Memories of Gasparilla Festivals," will be shown continuously.
