Every November, the Cayman Islands have a celebration that turns the island upside down. It is the annual Pirates Week Festival. When the event kicked off on Thursday night is was the 34th consecutive year that Grand Cayman celebrated Pirates Week. The event spanned 11 fun packed days including music, parades, contests, fireworks and more. With an 11-day celebration, there is something for everyone of all ages. Source

Don’t miss Pirates Week 2013
We start our festival with a fantastic steel pan competition and kick-off party and on Friday night the festival goes off with a bang with a spectacular fireworks display that you will not want to miss! With a Pirate Costume competition, crowning of the Festival Queen and the National Song Contest that night there is no better place to be in the Caribbean.
On the first Saturday we have a mock ‘pirate invasion’ from the sea! Two old-time sailing vessels, loaded with pirates make a Saturday surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbour with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands of people line the streets to watch the spectacle and its all good-natured fun with a new twist every year. Families just love it. It’s the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region.
Keep checking the website for updates and special offers throughout the year. You can also become a fan of the festival on Facebook or follow us on Twitter and if you want to be in the ‘pirate invasion’ or volunteer for the festival then please contact us at email@example.com.
We hope to see you all in November 2013, pirates and landlubbers alike with you all ready to have lots of fun with us in the Cayman Islands.
