This is it!  The Gasparilla Day Parade is happening!

Please register to let us know you'll be there.  If you are bringing a guest (or guests), make sure to read all of the information below regarding guest fees and guidelines.

Lunch will be provided to all registrants.

Parade Position: We will be float #68 for the Gasparilla Day Parade.  For staging, the float will be parked on Bayshore between W. Bay View Ave and W. Tampa Ave.

Bus Transportation:

A bus will be available after the parade to ride to the after party.  Bus passes are $20 and can be purchased here.

Guest Fees:

You may bring guests for $75 per person + $3 processing fee.  Your guest is not confirmed until the registration fee is paid and all necessary forms have been signed and returned.  The forms will be sent to their email prior to the parade and can be e-signed.  If you choose not to pay at time of registration, your guest's registration may be canceled if the maximum number of paid guests permitted per parade (20) is reached prior to payment. 

When registering guests, you have several payment options:

  1. Pay online at the time of registration using the member's PayPal account.
  2. Pay online at the time of registration using the guest's PayPal account or credit card information.  To do this, the guest will need to log onto PayPal or choose to checkout as guest once you get redirected to the PayPal system.
  3. Pay online later.  To do this, choose the "Invoice Me" option at checkout.  The YMKN member will receive an emailed invoice that includes a link to view the invoice online.  This invoice can be paid by the YMKN member, or forwarded to the guest for payment.
  4. Pay by check.  Anyone wanting to pay by check should contact Carol Conn to make arrangements.
