John's Pass Village & Boardwalk is the sort of place you imagine when you think of the beach.
It’s brimming with rows of colorful shops, and outdoor tables gathered around cafes. Singers belt out tunes under an umbrella. Signs offer dolphin tours and wave-runner rentals. Restaurants flaunt enticing perfumes. And amongst it all, beach-goers --clad in flip-flops and cover-ups-- wander and smile and nibble on ice cream cones.
I wonder what it’s going to look like when pirates invade!
I can find out, and so can you, when John Levique Pirate Days storms into the Village May 10-12, 2013. This three-day event celebrates the discovery of John's Pass after the hurricane of 1848. The fun includes:
- A pirate's ball, complete with a pirates and wenches auction
- Costume contests for adults and children
- Pirates invading the Pass at high noon
- A street parade
- Story telling
- Strolling entertainment
- A village-wide treasure hunt
- Pirate themed merchandise
- Food and beverage vendors
- Authentic performers
You should go—because while to err is human, to arrrgh is pirate!
