Ahoy Matey

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

A dashing ship's Captain


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.
