Ahoy Matey

We attended this year's Pirate Festival in Gananoque last weekend.
There was a small ship








A dashing ship's Captain









Skeletons












Parrots
and of course, treasure.

Actually there was even an area where kids could dig for treaure.  There were lots of things for kids to do:





Games to play












Musical activities to take part in








Sword fighting








Over all, it was good family fun.  People were encouraged to dress in pirate garb, but not everyone did.








There was entertainment for adults too, including music







and dancing wenches









Here are some of my favorite Pirates of the day


The sword master
A fellow with a friend (this particular parrot wasn't real, but was animated)








The Newfie pirate, complete with Salt Water Sally













And of course, the star of the whole event, Capt N Tor











It wasn't huge, but it did make for an enjoyable afternoon and I'm glad we went.
