Some time years ago, a new tradition started ...
For many years Gasparilla Island was a festive time around the 4th of July, with Chamber of
Commerce cookouts and community gatherings galore. But at some point, for some reason,
people drifted away from that type of celebration.
In July of 2013 that all changed.
