This week’s featured Pin is the 2018 Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa ‘GASPARILLA PIRATE SKULL COMPASS’ Pin (ID # 97322). The Pin was released to celebrate a yearly Tampa Event – The Gasparilla Pirate Festival held every year at the end of Jan. The theme of the festivities is the legend of José Gaspar (also known as Gasparilla), a mythical Spanish pirate who supposedly operated in Southwest Florida from the late 1700s until the early 1800s. The main event of the festival is the Parade of Pirates, which is organized by the city of Tampa along with Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla (YMKG). We love Skulls & we love Pirate themes, so this pin was a welcome acquisition to the HRC WORLDWIDE Pin Vault.
