Pirate Festival in Virginia
Today, tomorrow and Sunday is the Blackbeard Pirate Festival in Hampton, Virginia. It's a weekend-long dock party featuring many historical reenactors performing skits. There be music, vendors, and actual tall-masted sailing ships engaging in mock sea battles. The event culminates with a reenactment of Blackbeard's last stand and subsequent funeral parade.
