Captain Morgan is also making sure everyone gets to and from Gasparilla safely by giving you a code for $20 off your Lyft ride.

"Hundreds of thousands of people and pirates will be invading Tampa next weekend, and if you've ever been a part of the Gasparilla experience before, you know just how exciting the celebrations are," said Christina Choi, DIAGEO Senior Vice President, Rum, Gin & Tequila. "Captain Morgan wants to make sure that as many people as possible are having a fun and safe experience. Getting some of our fellow Morgans closer to the action and offering up to $20,000 in Lyft Ride Smart credits is our way of doing just that."

Lyft users 21 and older can use the code CAPTAINMORGAN20 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. the day of Gasparilla for the discount.

"This Gasparilla, we're encouraging those celebrating to plan ahead with a Lyft ride to help them explore Tampa and not worry about parking or how to get home afterwards," said Yun Ling, Florida General Manager for Lyft. "We're excited to partner with Captain Morgan to give Tampa residents and visitors a reliable, affordable ride option."

The discount is only available while supplies last. If your ride is less than $20, the remaining value is forfeited. The code can't be used with other Lyft promo offers and does not apply to tips, cancellation fees or damage fees.
