As many as 100 pirates boats are expected to show up for the 18th annual PNW Cruisers Party, a pirate-themed rendezvous that draws attendees year after year with its raucous, fun-loving vibe.
While the event attracts mostly sailors, it’s open to anyone and registration isn’t needed – just show up.
The party is an annual tribute to the cruising lifestyle, a celebration of freedom with certain recurring elements including live music, attendees decked out in pirate gear, plenty of liquid refreshments and frequent cannon fire (pet owners beware). We’ll have blindfolded dinghy races, pirate dance Saturday night with a best dressed pirate contest. Local ale on tap, potluck dinner Saturday night on the docks. Vendors selling pirate gear. Possibly a piñata for the kids. And more.
The event gets underway Friday night with live music on the docks by local trop-rock favorite Dave Calhoun.
Admission is free.
Full events agenda is coming soon.
