The Gloucester County Fair kicked off last night to a minimum crowd. Here we took a video of what looks to be the best ride of the fair. This year the rides are cut down from several years ago. We didn't make last year's fair as we were in Florida and went to Disney instead. We were hoping to attend tonight but the rain kept us away. So much for the Miss Gloucester Pageant. We have some pictures to post yet of the fair. Looks like Saturday will be the best day for anyone interested in attending.

The Gloucester Renaissance Festival begins tomorrow morning at the Courthouse circle. Saturday, July 17th, 2010. This is the 4th season for the festival and the company that puts on this event, Medieval Fantasies Company, has done a fantastic job to date. For the small area they have to work in, they pull off a large presence and create a great feel of days of old.
We attended last years event not expecting much and were very delighted with what we experienced. (That is a tough feat to pull off with us too). So this is an event we highly recommend. Everyone has a chance to get out and have a great time this weekend with all the choices there are out here. The Kalmar Nyckel in Yorktown, The Alliance in Yorktown, This festival, so much to do, so little time to do it. We will see you around these events as we will be everywhere this weekend.

Take a moment to step back in time when you sail on the Schooner Alliance located over at the River Walk in Yorktown. Captain Greg Lohse takes a moment to tell us about his ship.

Live interview with Captain Lauren Morgans of the Kalmar Nyckel. She is only in Yorktown for another few days so we recommend you come down and see this incredible ship and maybe take a sail with her.

One of our favorite pirates, Cap'n Pern aka Pernell Taylor takes a few moments out of his busy schedule to give us an interview at the end of the Hampton Blackbeard Festival. This was the kick off to Hampton's 400 year anniversary. A major show it was to. We have over 30 gigs of pictures and videos to produce yet and we will be expanding the world's largest site based on the Hampton Blackbeard fest. Visit the site at http://www.hamptonblackbeardfest.info to see the site.
We were down at the Hampton Blackbeard Fest this past weekend and once again got to board our favorite ship, the Kalmar Nyckle. As of yesterday, July 12th, 2010, she docked over at the Yorktown River Walk dock. If you have not seen this ship, get over to Yorktown and visit her as she is an incredible ship with an outstanding crew.
We plan on taking a number of pictures of her while she is here and she will only be here until the end of this week and leaving on Sunday. She only visits us once a year, so do not delay. We plan on getting some interviews this year. So look for them soon.
The local paper can't bring you this show. The local news stations won't bring you this show, but we can and do. Here is the complete show of the fireworks from Yorktown as seen from Gloucester Point Beach this year, 2010. Plus you can watch this any time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for as long as it's on here and we are not taking it off.
This took a bit longer than expected due to other commitments such as a 4 day intensive video and photo shoot at the Hampton 400th Anniversary kick off with the Blackbeard Pirate fest and starting with the Pirates Ball. This was a local blues band that played at the beach on the Point on the 4th of July.
