Pirates of the High Seas Festival

Ahoy mateys! Set sail for adventure on Columbus Day Weekend and head to PCB for the Pirates of the High Seas Fest! This three day event is a must for anyone with swashbuckling dreams of being a pirate. Friday and Saturday are at Pier Park; Sunday’s festivities are located in the Grand Lagoon at Capt. Anderson’s Marina. From fishing clinics, magic shows, live music, vendor village and fireworks to the epic water battle that ensues as the pirates are chased out of the Grand Lagoon, this is a day full of fun for the whole family… including four legged family members that can strut their stuff at the Pirate Pet Parade!

Sunday’s festivities are located at Capt. Anderson’s Marina in the Grand Lagoon.
