Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront for two rollicking days of music, mayhem, and more! This family-friendly event features activities designed to bring out the “pirate” in everyone. Costume contests, games, a treasure hunt, and pirate re-enactors all combine to celebrate those scallywags we all wish we could be: pirates! Saturday features a full day of activities. A pirate stunt show by Shadow Players Stage Combat Group features actors in authentic costumes, rip-roaring sword-play, and crazy audience interaction. Participate in Cap’n Pete’s Treasure Hunt and enjoy arts and crafts with participating museum organizations like the Old Coast Guard Station and Mariner's Museum. Other activities throughout the weekend include bandana-making, face-painting, storytelling, weapons demonstrations, and shopping for pirate-themed merchandise.
