Local Entertainment & Events
The Fort Myers Beach Chamber is pleased to announce that Belinda Hadcock of Skeleton Crew Entertainment, LLC, has agreed to return as Event Director for Salty Sam’s 10th Annual Pirate Festival on Fort Myers Beach. This announcement comes after the success of last year’s festival, recently ranked as the #2 Pirate Festival in the nation by USA Today Travel.
“Belinda’s an expert and is well known for staging successful period pirate festivals. It’s because of Belinda and her Crew’s hard work that we’ve been named #2 just behind Tampa’s Gasparilla Pirate Fest.” says Chamber President Bud Nocera.
“The Admiral”, as Belinda is affectionately called, is joined by her Captain “Robert Flood” (Steve McDermet), and the full Skeleton Crew of 40 dedicated pirates. The privateers are already hard at work to make the 2015 festival bigger and better than ever.
To participate in Salty Sam’s 10th Annual Pirate Fest as either a vendor or an entertainer, please contact the Admiral, Belinda Hadcock at 239-777-1727.
