Tybee Island is known for its historic lighthouse, delicious seafood restaurants, miles of beaches and its love of pirates! That’s right, pirates!
On International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I want to be sure you know about the 9th Annual Tybee Island Pirate Fest on October 10-13, 2013.
It includes all kinds of swashbuckling family-friendly fun.
Every Columbus Day weekend, Tybee Island transforms into a lively pirate village, celebrating the colorful seafaring history of the Georgia coast.
The Tybee Pirate Fest will feature three days of live music and family-friendly activities around Tybee Island. It kicks off with the coronation of a king and queen and includes fireworks, a Pirate Victory Parade and a Scallywags Costume Contest.
Country rocker Shooter Jennings and his band The Triple Crown will headline the 2013 Tybee Island Pirate Fest on Saturday, October 12. Additional musical acts will include Journey tribute band Departure, Jimmy Buffett tribute band A1A, The Chuck Courtenay Band and several other local performers.
Pirate enthusiasts from around the country are hooked on the fun that showcases the best of Tybee Island.
