PUT-IN-BAY – The Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the 11th annual Pyrate Festival June 21-23. This weekend event is filled with activities for all ages. Starting Friday night, Pyrates invade Put-in-Bay’s downtown and hoist the Pyrate Flags in the DeRivera Park. From there, adult Pyrates can explore Put-in-Bay’s establishments by participating in the first Pyrate Crawl.

Saturday’s activities are fun for the entire family. Dress up like a true Pyrate and join the adult or kid’s costume contest with grand prizes awarded for each. Saturday and Sunday the Pyrate Village and Marketplace will be in full swing with a variety of activities including sword fighting, fire shows, magical mermaids and Pyrate souvenirs.
