Who Read This

The Cayman Islands hosts an annual Pirates Week Festival, complete with a mock-pirate ‘invasion’ from the sea! Two old-time sailing vessels, loaded with pirates make a surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbour with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands of people line the streets to watch the spectacle and its good-natured fun with a new twist every year. Families just love it. It's the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region. The festival then continues all week with parades, costume contests, music, street dancing, competitions, Heritage Days and fireworks.

In 2014, Pirates Week runs from November 6th to 16th. The Sister Islands celebrate either side of those dates. Over the last 34 years it has become the country's largest celebration, drawing some 35,000 patrons. It now encompasses 32 different events which in the past have included eight street dances, five heritage days, a float parade and landing pageant, firework shows, song contest, two swim meets, a darts tournament, a steel band competition, kids fun day, two teen music nights, an underwater treasure hunt and two running races. For more information contact the National Festival office on (345) 949 5859 or visit www.piratesweekfestival.com for complete festival information.
