Pirate Party on the Beach

May 17, 2014 to May 18, 2014

Location

17th Street Park

The Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront Saturday-Sunday, May 17-18, 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.

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, singing sea shanties, and demonstrating swordplay.  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 and Overland Crew.

 

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 at 6:30pm and then settle in the sand at 8:00m for the animated film “Pirates: Band of Misfits” – to be shown on a giant screen, right on the beach.

On both days, enjoy arts and crafts and displays by participating museum organizations like the Old Coast Guard Station and Visit Norfolk.

Other activities throughout the weekend include bandana-making, face-painting, storytelling, weapons demonstrations, and strolling entertainers.

On Sunday, enter your team in the Pirates Challenge, which will test your skill in several physical challenges, all pirate-themed.  Winning teams receive cash prizes and trophies.  There is an entry fee for teams participating in the Pirates Challenge.

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