Your dates for the Pirate Festival are … WRONG! There are multiple references on this site to the festival being July 29-31, and also Thursday-Sunday. They CANNOT BE BOTH. Obviously, nobody proofread the schedule, since July 29-31 are Sunday through Tuesday. A closer look reveals that the true dates must be July 26-29 (Thursday-Sunday). This should be corrected, since it will confuse many people, who will visit at the wrong time, or miss the festival entirely. I’m pointing this out to be constructive, not negative.
Thanks for getting back to me Carolyn. I’ve been told (unofficially) that the dates for this year’s Pirate Festival are Aug. 3-5. I do know that the festival’s dates ARE already available. What I find confusing is that last year’s dates etc. are still displayed on the website. All that outdated info — in my opinion — should be deleted. This is the last I’ll say on the subject. lol Best wishes Carolyn.
Hi James- agreed..
Things are now being updated as schedules and 2012 content is coming through…
The dates are indeed 3-5 th August…. Friday through to Sunday
Interesting to see the Pirate Festival come together…not come together…to get ‘er done…not get ‘er done!. Hopefully all (nothing) will (not) unfold in due course and the weekend will (not) be as entertaining as the previous Pirate Fest was (not).
Will Non Quitto dance on the end of a rope; will Scabby Dan be crab meat; will the mermaid get filet’d??? Tune in to Mahone Bay this weekend.
