PLAY, EAT, DRINK & DRESS LIKE A PIRATE
Pirates be a ‘Comin to Currituck! Join us at The Weeping Radish Brewery, Butchery and Pub for a day filled with swashbuckling fun! This day will celebrate Currituck’s 350th Anniversary and commemorate this coastal town as one of the original five ports of North Carolina. And one must not forget the legacy of ole’ Blackbeard as 2018 brings the 300th Anniversary of his demise. He’ll make his appearance on The Mainland with the rest of the pirate crew of The Loose Cannon Company and some other surprising characters of Currituck’s past. The day will feature a pirate encampment, artisan marketplace, pirate bounce house, and tons of activities for children and adults. Ho! Ye, children and adults, see below for costume contest information!
Black Pelican Catering will be on-site serving up seafood boils by the bucket. Aye there will be fresh shrimp, corn and potatoes! Don’t quite have the appetite of a sea-faring pirate? Try one of the famous German Brats, homemade at The Weeping Radish Brewery, Butchery and Pub, featured on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” with Guy Fieri. Seasonal draft favorites, a special pirate brew and wine from Sanctuary Vineyards will be for sale for adults, 21 years old and older. Must show valid driver’s license with proof of age. Water and other non-alcoholic beverages will be on sale for purchase.
