The Greater Fort Myers Beach Area Chamber of Commerce seeks title sponsorship for the event which was attended by over 7,500 people last year. The event also is seeking sponsorships for the Pub Crawl and Pirate’s Ball as well as prize donations and volunteer performers.
The plunder runs all weekend long and begins with a boom. Opening cannon shots are fired from the fisherman’s wharf at Old San Carlos Boulevard on Friday at 5PM and closing cannon shots are on Sunday at 5PM.
Pirate Fest will include live music, events and acts such as the Craic Celtic Fusion Music, Arrr Inc. and the Skeleton Crew Family Fun Theatre, cannon firing demonstrations from Gulf Coast Black Powder, Black Duck pirate ship rides, live mermaids and pirate groups on stage and interacting with the crowd on Old San Carlos Boulevard.
The most exciting event will be the live sea battle at 1:45 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be a 45-minute cruise to view the sea battle at 1:45 p.m. both days leaving from the fisherman’s wharf docks on Old San Carlos Boulevard in Fort Myers Beach.
Pirate Fest evening festivities will include a Pirate’s Ball Friday, October 10th, and a Pub Crawl all weekend.
