Pirates invade Tampa for "Gasparilla"

Pirates invaded Hillsborough Bay and took over Tampa today.

The historic event happens every year in the city and attracts hundreds of thousands of people.
Pirates, parades and beads are part of the annual "Gasparilla" celebration.
It's a tradition dated back to 1904 and while the city always tries to resist the attack, every year the Mayor is forced to surrender the key to the city.
