John Levique Pirate Days – 2010

 

     Ahoy, mateys!  John Levique Pirate Days is a chance to have fun!  Eat, shop, dress up, and learn a little bit of history!  Who is John Levique?  He's the one who discovered what is known now as John's Pass after a hurricane roared through the St. Petersburg, Fl area in 1848.  For three days pirates and pirate fans celebrate.   A sea battle, crafters market, musicians, and Pirate Fight Circle entertain pirate fans of all ages!  A Family Treasure Hunt will amuse the children.  The vendors at the market offer a myriad of things to pillage:  pirate clothing, plants, wall plaques, jewelry, mugs, toys, weapons, etc.  Something for nearly everyone!  Cold drinks such as lemonade are sold.  There are many restaurants offering different types of food.    There are games and face painting.  Musicians entertain at Don's Dock, the street fair, and the entrance to the boardwalk.  Listen to sea chants and Celtic music.  Pirates of all ages roam free.  The West Coast Mutineer's Fight Circle and Encampment is living history.  We enjoyed watching the fighting with various weapons.   A fire show is at dusk on Saturday.  There is also a ball and pub crawl.  When did you last let your inner pirate free?  Admission is free.  Proceeds from sales benefit the Fishermen Lost at Sea Memorial Fund.  John's Pass, a quaint fishing village, is located in Madeira Beach, Fl.  http://www.johnspass.com/index.cfm
