Cayman ~ Pirates Week Festival

(The image courtesy borrowed from

Pirate Week is the national Festival of the Cayman Island.

November 6 - 16, 2008

The Cayman Islands have a colourful seafaring past which is celebrated with pride during this national event. Prepare yourself for days and nights of pirate parades, costume contests, music, fireworks, sports competitions and craft fairs. Don't miss the week's kick-off - a mock pirate landing by bands of rowdy pirates who arrest the Governor in George Town Harbour, followed by a float parade of colouful costumes and local steel drum bands. In the evening the roads are closed in George Town as the whole Island parties the night away, dancing under the stars to locals and guest bands, and enjoying the local food on offer.
