Pirate Party on the Beach

Virginia Beach Oceanfront

May 20-21, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Virginia Beach, Virginia – The Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront Saturday-Sunday, May 20-21, for two rollicking days of music, mayhem, and more!  This family-friendly event features activities designed to bring out the “pirate” in everyone.  Pirate games, a treasure hunt, and pirate re-enactors all combine to celebrate those scallywags we all wish we could be: pirates!

Other activities throughout the weekend include bandana-making, face-painting, weapons demonstrations, and shopping for pirate-themed merchandise.

Pirate re-enactors will abound, with those founding pirates of Pirate Party on the Beach, The Moody Crewe, leading the way with educational displays and lively interaction.  Pirate Party on the Beach is also pleased to welcome Blackbeard's Crew to the event for the first time!

The Real Mermaids are returning to Pirate Party on the Beach!  Thrill to mermaids swimming in a unique 550 gallon tank!  There will even be opportunities to have your picture taken with a mermaid and to ask questions.

Pirate musicians The Motley Tones and Bob Zentz will entertain with authentic pirate tunes!

Saturday features a full day of activities.  The pirate stunt show by Shadow Players Stage Combat Group features actors in authentic costumes, sword-play, and audience interaction.  The show will be presented several times throughout each day.

On Saturday, participate in Cap’n Pete’s Treasure Hunt, where there's a real buried treasure.

Pirate Party on the Beach is FREE and open to the public.
