Last year I wrote about the Pirates festival that is held yearly in the Cayman Islands, if you did not get a chance to attend, you can do so this year on Nov 7 - 17 when all seafarers and landlubbers can relive the days when pirates roamed the ocean blue.
I know a week is 7-days, but for 'Pirates Week' this festival will be 11-days of Caribbean music, street dancing, parades, costumes, competitions, sport events,and treasure hunts. The festival starts off with a "Steel Pan Competition at 7 p.m. followed by a pre-pirates week party on the wharf at 9 p.m; then on Friday the 8th, is the competition and crowing of the festival queen, followed by spectacular fireworks; and for the late nighters '"street dancing" begins along with a food festival that goes till 2 a.m.
This family festival has a lot for the entire family, particularly the children's fun fair day, teen disco and stand-up paddle board race; as well as many other races and competitions for the entire family. To see all the fun the festival has in store, get the full schedule here.
To encourage all you swashbucklers and wenches to come visit there are special offers, good only during 'pirates week, which can be found on this site. While on the site click on the link 'how to be a pirate' it will teach you how to speak like one, dress like one, and eat like one, and on the link 'advice' are more tips to help enhance your trip to the Cayman Islands during the festival.
