The Coast Guard is temporarily changing the regulations regarding the Annual Gasparilla Marine Parade, Hillsborough Bay, and Tampa, FL. This action is necessary because the Parade will be held on January 29, 2005, instead of the first Saturday in February as established by permanent regulation. Also, the Coast Guard and the Parade coordinators have agreed on a modified parade route to minimize security and safety concerns and reduce congestion in the Sparkman and Ybor channels in vicinity of commercial port facilities.
