Our Many Fun Events!
The Krewe of Alegria is active all year-round with many events and fund raising activities. Our primary focus is to raise money to enable us to purchase new shoes for our very own 501(c)3 charity—Alegria's Kickin' for Kids, Inc. Please see "Our Charity" page and shoe distributions.
Alegria has volunteered for the internationally known Gasparilla Distance Classic since 2012! We will be returning for our 6th year to pose as pirates with the runners at the finish line for memorable photo ops. We will also be serving beer at the post race "parties" following each day of racing at Cotanchobee Park. Races this year are on Saturday, February 24 and Sunday, February 25, 2018.
Saturday, February 17, the week prior to the adult races, a children's"
Publix Too Good For Drugs Jr. Gasparilla Distance Classic" race
will be held. Alegria will be present with a tent to entertain the
children with pirate photos and fun handouts. Location is at Jefferson
High School, 4401 West Cypress Street, Tampa, FL 33607.
We hope to see you at these fantastic events!
The Krewe of Alegria hosts several fund raising and social events throughout the year. For several years we have held a fall fund raiser to benefit Alegria's Kickin' for Kids. Two main event themes from the past have been "Bike Night" and "Tampa Nights - Latin Style." The past two years we have held a free fund raising event and shoe drive entitled "Share the Love" at Gaspar's Grotto.
In 2016, we celebrated our 30th Anniversary as a Krewe - we hosted the Fire & Ice Ball in place of an annual themed fall fund raiser. Please enjoy our memories through our event photos.
