Festivities are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. today (Aug. 12) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13. Admission is free.

Visitors will find musical performances and belly dancing on two stages, Queen Meditrina and her royal court of mermaids and sword battles led by Pirate Warrior Katy Joy Pettinger.

Children will find entertainment, too, as they can walk on water and have their faces painted.

And, of course, there will be food, beer and vendors offering pirate souvenirs.
