Gasparilla 2013 live coverage from Eagle 8

It’s Gasparilla time!  Thanks for watching News Channel 8’s live coverage of Gasparilla Pirate Fest.

Be aware that Eagle 8’s live signal won’t always be available.  The Eagle may land briefly to refuel.  Stay tuned, and the signal should return shortly.  You may also hear pilot-reporter Judd Chapin talking from time to time.

Don’t forget, starting at 2:30 p.m., you can watch the parade online, through live streaming video.

And, we’re updating throughout the day today, with a live blog about what’s happening, and a photo gallery that’s being updated throughout the day, as we receive photos from the invasion and parade. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
