Gasparilla is upon us. It is the adult-fun event where people of the Tampa Bay Area and surrounding communities get to enjoy the day as pirates. However, Gasparilla is not always fun and games. Things do happen but, there are different ways you can protect yourself so you can focus on the parade and enjoying friends rather than dealing with other issues. Review these tips below:
1. Have a designated driveR lined up.
Do not end the first January of the new decade with a DUI charge or an accident. Be sure to have a designated driver planned or use ride-sharing.
2. Protect your drink.
Be sure to keep your drink covered so items and/or harmful substances are not dropped in it.
3. Be careful making your way to the parade.
Be sure to cross at cross walks as you make your way to the parade and do not cross the street in the middle of the road. Follow where the police direct you.
