Pirate Party on the Beach

May 14, 2016 to May 15, 2016

Location

Dairy Queen Grill & Chill 17th Street Park
Free Event

The Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront Saturday-Sunday, May 14-15, for two rollicking days of music, mayhem, and more!  This family-friendly event features activities designed to bring out the “pirate” in everyone.  Costume contests, games, a treasure hunt, pirate re-enactors, and movie on the beach all combine to celebrate those scallywags we all wish we could be: pirates.

This will be the best year yet as we celebrate our 10th anniversary!

NEW for 2016:

Pirate band Rusty Cutlass joins us from Orlando, Florida.  Rusty Cutlass has played at “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party,” “Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival,” and “Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party” (all at Walt Disney World in Florida), the International Pirate Festival in New Orleans, and at Atlantis Resort in the Grand Bahamas.

For the first time, Pirate Party on the Beach will feature The Real Mermaids!  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.

Also, new this year will be a giant inflatable pirate ship bounce-house on the beach!

Joining us for the first time will be pirate musicians, The Motley Tones.  Enjoy them as they roam the park and boardwalk, entertaining with authentic pirate tunes!

When arriving at the Pirate Party on the Beach, beware of those scurvy scallywags, The Moody Crewe.  These pirate re-enactors will be posing for photographs, displaying artifacts, and playing interactive games.  The Moody Crewe loves landlubbers, and this merry band of pirates will entertain as well as educate.  Joining the Moody Crewe will be the Loose Cannon Company, Overland, Crew of the Archangel, and Cypher's Gang.

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 dress like a pirate and enter the costume contest!

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

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