Try your hand at speaking pirate this weekend when you enjoy two full days and three evenings of Piratefest 2009 at Happy Harbor Marina & Tiki Bar in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Friday, September 25, kicks off the event with an Opening Bash featuring the Jason Justice Band from 6:00 until 10:00 p.m. The Saturday night featured act is Kenny Neal – a four-time Grammy nominee – at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday brings hit songwriter Tony Stampley at 8:00 p.m. To help you unwind as you listen, drink specials will be offered each evening.
The great music is not just for the evenings, though. Live entertainment plays throughout the weekend, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Musical guests include Catfish Flats with guest Greg Memphis, The Lowdown Throwdown, The Harry Sherman Trio, Big Muddy, J.J. Mack, Three Days Straight, Adam Holt, Cotton Bayou Allstars, and Lee Yankie and the Hellz Yeah!
Free daytime admission for the kids encourages everyone to join in the fun. Turn them loose on the inflatables and games, hear them squeal with laughter at their caricature drawings, and try to guess which henna tattoo they will choose to wear. A pirate ship may not be included in the inventory, but do take advantage of the festival’s watercraft rental discounts.
Take time to visit with the Gulf Coast artisans and authors when you peruse the arts and crafts booths. Instigate a little family competition by participating in the Treasure Hunt. And, of course, munch on meals and snacks from the ever-popular food booths.
Tickets for the event are $10 in advance or $15 at the door, and the ticket is good for the entire weekend. You can purchase tickets at Happy Harbor Marina (27212 Marina Rd.) or call 251-981-1910.
