  2. 2014 Michigan Pirate FestivalGrand Haven, Michigan is home to the 8th annual Michigan Pirate Festival for 7 days starting Monday August 4th through Sunday the 10th.

    The Michigan Pirate Festival has partnered with the Loutit District Library for fun filled week long event throughout the Grand Haven area.

    The festival offers a week of fun, entertaining, and educational programs including a discussion series devoted to showing how real pirates lived, played, and plied their trade for good and ill from the Buccaneer Wars to the American Revolution.

    Pirate re-enactors sail into Grand Haven's waterfront, fire real cannons and muskets, and wander the streets of the city bringing all of the adventure of the Golden Age of Pirates with them. 

    I couldn't find a weapons policy on the webpage so it would be best to contact the event planners for information regarding swords and knives. However if you include any pirate swords as part of your costume make sure they are sheathed and peace tied for safety.
  3. I finally got to go to the Gasparilla Parade this year. I've visited Florida in January several times over the last few years but never had the opportunity to attend the event. So this year I made sure to bring my camera.

    It took me a little bit of time to learn how to remove the audio from the video as someone in the background was being rather rude and offensive (at least until they saw we had children with us) so I didn't want to expose you to that language.

    I found some royalty free music that was rather upbeat to replace it with. I hope you enjoy this video and we look forward to providing you with several more over the next month.

  4. Do you live in Northern California?
    Is your Dad a medieval entusiast? 
    Looking for the perfect last minute Father's Day gift?
    Check out the Northern California Pirate Festival at the Vallejo Waterfront in Vallejo California.

    The 6th annual event is taking place this Father's Day weekend June 16th & 17th, 2012 and best of all it's FREE admission. That's a rare occurence in the world of pirate, medieval and renaissance festivals.

    Check out this YouTube video from last years event.




    The website doesn't state a weapons policy so make sure to check with the event coordinators before including any pirate swords or knives as part of your costume.
  5. The Gasparilla Pirate Festival is set to begin again this weekend in Tampa Florida. 
    A pirate invasion is planned in Tampa Bay, A Parade of Pirates through the streets, and a Pirate Street Festival all free to the public.
    Check out this YouTube video about the event.
    Come on out and have some fun.  However, a quick check of the website could not verify if swords and knives as part of your costume are allowed so please check with event coordinators first.
