    Today is the day -- Gasparilla. But with a Super Bowl touch.

    Members of the NFL champion Bucs will lead the parade down Bayshore Boulevard.

    Here's the schedule:

    The invasion starts at 11:30 a.m. when the Jose Gasparilla pirate ship leads a flotilla around Davis Islands to the Tampa Convention Center downtown.

    The parade starts at 1:45 p.m. at Bay to Bay Boulevard. It will head north on Bayshore Boulevard to the Platt Street bridge, then east on Channelside Drive and north on Florida Avenue to Jackson Street. Then it will turn east to the end, at Marion Street.

    There is a street festival downtown from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Franklin Street between Whiting and Brorein streets. Admission is free.

    The streets near the Tampa Convention Center and the St. Pete Times Forum will be closed until about 6:30 p.m. to make room for the parade.

    A shuttle from the Florida State Fairgrounds will run from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. today. The dropoff is at Franklin and Madison streets.

    Fairgrounds parking is free. The round-trip shuttle costs $5 a person.
