Gasparilla is coming and I plan on going to the day parade with my wife and kid. I was wondering if you can carry their or does it fall under an event like a pro football game or even public nuisance. I don't plan on drinking, but people definitely will.

You should really read up on Florida statutes 790.06(12) see below.

It is not a professional athletic event is it? No

No such thing a 'Public nuisance'. There is a restriction on 'place of nuisance', but these are very specifically called out in the law and are usually places where illegal activity routinely takes place.

Feel free to have a drink or two. Perfectly legal - as far as carrying the firearms goes.

Enjoy. Stay Safe.
