Arrrgh... me hearties!
Katy, Beth, Levi, & I went over to Tybee Island on Saturday to check out the Pirate Fest (the sickly men stayed home) - it was amazing fun - I'm already planning my costume for next year. It's held right on the beach front in the old town area, so not only can you shop & be part of all the pirate action, you can take an ocean dip as well. Here's the 'official' write up:
Swashbucklers of all ages will be converging on Tybee Island to participate in the 4th Annual Tybee Island Pirate Fest! Don your most colorful pirate's costume, and gather your Krewe of marauding buccaneers, because Tybee will be overrun and invaded by pirates.
The Pirate Fest Invasion will be on Friday, October 10th, festivities begin at 6pm in the shadow of the Tybee Pier & Pavilion. The pirates and their buccaneers will invade Tybee with cannons blazing, in search of Tybee's Mayor Jason Buelterman and the 'key to the city.' Once the key has been surrendered the pirates will party Friday and Saturday with live entertainment. The Thieves Market will be filled with treasures from different Ports of Call along with grog & grub to feed the Scurvy Dogs!
