The Pirates Are Coming!

Dr. Randy Feldman, Chief Smile Officer of Blue Wave Orthodontics was all smiles to see the latest cover of South Tampa Magazine. He has been a participant in Gasparilla since 1997 as a part of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla (YMKG) and is featured on the January 2017 cover in full pirate garb.
 
More photos and fun facts about his gear and that of his fellow crew members is also on the South Tampa Magazine website in their A Gasparilla Life For You feature.

The Gasparilla Pirate Fest returns on Saturday, January 28 and will once again take Tampa Bay by storm. Learn more about the history of the event, and how to attend at the official website.

Dr. Feldman and the Blue Wave Orthodontics team participated in the Children's Parade on Saturday, January 21. The history of Feldman Orthodontics and this parade dates back to 2004. Photos of the team at the parade are posted in a Facebook album.

If you've never taken the kids to the Children's Gasparilla Extravaganza, do make plans to come out next year. It's not just a parade. There is usually a preschoolers stroll, a bicycle and pedestrian rodeo, air invasion demonstrations by the US Special Operations Jump Team, and last but not least an amazing fireworks show over Tampa Bay. Fantastic!

Inspired by the Legend of Pirate Jose Gaspar, YMKG was founded in 1904 as an organization dedicated to enriching the vitality and imagination of Tampa and the surrounding community. Learn more about YMKG, the Children's Parade, and the Invasion and Parade of Pirates at the official YMKG site and the Gasparilla site. Hope to see you there!
