The Pirates Are Stormin Hampton, Virginia Again

Quick, hide all the valuables, the pirates are back and they are taking no prisoners this time.  This weekend, June 1st and 2nd, the Hampton Blackbeard Pirate festival goes into full gear once again.  If you have never been to this event, it is a fantastic time.  Great actors and musicians abound all over downtown Hampton.

  The food is fabulous and there are all kinds of refreshments sold throughout the area.  Yes, even beer.  You can even pick up a full turkey leg that has been freshly smoked.

Pirates everywhere you look and even on the water.  Pirate ships will be all around.

Run fer cover if ye encounter this scurvy dog.  This is the infamous Cap'n Pern.  One of the nastiest henchmen of the 7 seas.  Even Blackbeard himself won't tangle with Pern.  (Really one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and a good friend).

Pirate ships of all types will be sailing these waters.  You dare not be in them when they are.  Canons are heard for miles when they get to fighting.

Rumor has it that Blackbeard's actual ghost comes back to Hampton at night and is seen around the camps looking for his loot during this event.  The pirates normally don't like to talk about this as it scares them near to death.

So come one, come all to the Hampton Blackbeard Pirate Festival.  You'll be glad you did.
