Calling All Swashbucklers and Buccaneers at Northwest: Virginia Beach’s Annual ‘Pirate Party on the Beach’ Returns This Weekend!
Arrrggh, matey! No plans this weekend? Join your fellow swashbucklers and buccaneers from Northwest and make your way to 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Once there, you'll encounter a scene you likely won't see every day: hundreds upon hundreds of people dressed in full pirate garb!
That's because the annual Pirate Party on the Beach takes place this Saturday and Sunday. The family-friend event, which is free to attend, promises everything from stunt shows, make-and-take crafts, and cannon firings to storytellings, treasure hunts, and pirate re-enactors. Be sure to arrive in costume if you want to compete in the party's costume contest and, if you want to watch a movie as you dig your toes into the sand, show up for the outdoor movie screening at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
