    Awkward and ButterflyLark Visit the Pirate Festival - TR

    AwkwardPineaple and myself had gone to this event last year and were looking forward to their second year. The Northern California Pirate Festival in Vallejo, Ca was this weekend, on the marina near Mare Island.
    I thought I would share a few pictures from the afternoon. Most won't have an explination or commenatry as little is needed.

    A few atmosphere pictures



    It's really only a taste of what it's like. There was so much color, and a lot more people in costume this year. Next year I hope to be able to go in costume. I say this every time, with Dicken's Fair as well, but it is my goal.

    They do a lot of pirate type games, there is a lot of music, drinking, food and vendors. Around every corner there is some type of stage set up with scenes and songs. Fencing demonstraitions, learning to use a whip, shoot a cannon and firearms. Everyone is very in character, and is really a lot of fun.

    Seems a little like a Ren Fair. I just went to one of those and loved it. Wow a Pirate Fair, now thats awesome! I would dress up as Elizabeth Swann.
