The Portland Pirate Festival – Sept 18th & 19th, 2010
Tickets be available online at Brown Paper Tickets.
They also be at local Portland Retailers.
Blimey! Portland had the world record with 1,670!!!!
But Avast! we lost it to those Bilge-sucking Brits… no… the Germans… wait… the Californians?
The Brixham Pirate Festival in England took the record back with 1,744 pirates, but the Germans stole the record for “The Largest Gathering of Pirates” with a count of 1,878. Alas, our brethren at the Northern CA Pirate Festival gathered 2,646 cut-throats in June, but before they could blink an eye-patch (or get their certificate) the free-booters in Hastings, England claimed the prize with 6,166… so that is the number we need to beat.
We’ll need 7,000 of ye Blaggard Dogs to re-take the record and hold it or else it’ll be Davy Jones’ locker with ye!
Sun. Sept 19th Begad! we be havin’ our record back or we’ll be a dancin’ with Jack Ketch!
With a stream-lined system for collecting signatures the gathering will last no more than a 1/2 hour and we’ll be treated to the raw energy of me bucko’s the River City Pipe & Drum Band.
