November 3rd-19th saw all three of the Cayman Islands invaded by pirates for the annual Pirates Week festival. Celebrating 40 years, this swashbuckling festival saw thousands of people take to the streets sporting their best pirate costumes!
On the first Saturday, a mock pirate invasion was staged, and two old-time sailing vessels loaded with pirates made a surprise landing at George Town harbour, capturing the Governor as they lay claim to the island.
Pirates Week is the national festival of the Cayman Islands and each year a new and surprising twist is added to the celebrations. So, why not don your best pirate outfit and make sure you are in Cayman for next year’s party!
