Some of the Black Bunny crew will be heading down to Tybee Island to participate in their Pirate Festival on October 10 & 11. We will be staying until Sunday, October 12th. After researching places to stay, I have discovered the best bet it to get a beach house rental near the festival area that sleeps enough for the crew that will be there. It comes out to a reasonable $$ per night.
If you want to go down to Tybee, pirate a little, drink a little, enjoy fresh seafood and some beautiful sunrises, let me know ASAP so I can get a good count of crew members and can reserve an appropriate sized house. I need to make the reservation by July / August.
Oct. 10-11, 2008 – AHOY MATES!
Swashbucklers of all ages will be converging on Tybee Island to participate in the 4th Annual Tybee Island Pirate Fest! Don your most colorful pirate’s costume, and gather your Krewe of marauding buccaneers, because Tybee will be overrun and invaded by pirates. That’s right the 4th Annual Pirate Fest weekend is coming October 10th - 11th and that means lots of pirates, merriment, parade and much more.
The Pirate Fest Invasion will be on Friday, October 10th, festivities begin at 6pm in the shadow of the Tybee Pier & Pavilion. The pirates and their buccaneers will invade Tybee with cannons blazing, in search of Tybee’s Mayor Jason Buelterman and the “key to the city.” Once the key has been surrendered the pirates will party Friday and Saturday with live entertainment. The Thieves Market will be filled with treasures from different Ports of Call along with grog & grub to feed the Scurvy Dogs!
Don’t miss the Pirate Parade on Saturday October 11th at 3pm. Following a successful invasion of the City of Tybee, the pirates and their buccaneer’s will gather for a victory parade down Butler Avenue in which the pirates share their wealth of trinkets and doubloons with the crowd along the parade route. Rumor has it that the parade will stop in front of city hall where the pirates will shoot their cannons at city hall, capture the mayor, and force him to ride out their victory parade on their float. There will be a pirate trophy for the best pirate float!
