Yes we are now merely months away!!! Time to be in full "Pirate Mode".
There is a lot happening and a lot to do!!
Looks like we will have our Pirate Ship in the MLK Parade Jan, 21st.!!!
We are having Councilman Ricki Barlow ride the ship through the parade!!!
We were in the Helldorado parade last and took "Best in Float!!!!
If you want to be part of the Martin Luther King Parade please email us so we have a head count (not a toilet count in nautical terms!!!) email your name and contact info to: parade@PirateFestLV.com
We now have Duel at Dusk Productions on board to handle all our stage combat.
There are creating special fight sequences for the faire and a special presentation for Fremont Street!! They will also be teaching sword fighting to the general public at the faire!! In fact they will have two separate classes, "gentlemanly fighting" in the Steampunk area and "down & dirty" in the Pirate area!! They just had a couple auditions and got some new talent to work with!!
Speaking of auditions...we will be holding auditions later in January. Although billed as a performers audition,anyone that wants to volunteer is welcome. We can meet, see what you have to offer and find the appropriate"berth" for you!!!
Entertainers are welcome to audition. We are utilizing "busker style" in that you are allowed to pass the hat at your performances.and sell performance related merchandise. So you don't have an actual act but you love to perform??? We still may have a spot for you!! We are creating several entertainment positions that we will provide and promote and audition individuals to perform in them. You will also be able to pass the hat! So watch for an update or the blog on the web site for info as it develops.
Speaking of the blog and information (notice all these clever segues?) I will continue with these Updates, but the quickest and most recent info will always be on the web site and on Facebook. So check the web site often, we are constantly updating and adding to the site : www.PirateFestLV.com there is a link on the front page to LIKE us (or in our case "AYE") on Facebook. And make sure to tell your friends, coworkers, neighbors, heck even people you don't like about us!! The more the merrier!!! Entertainers and vendors really like a lot of people!!!
Speaking of vendors... we have some great vendors committed already!! Now that the holidays are behind us we are getting new inquiries and applications on a daily basis. If you know of or have a favorite vendor make sure they know about Pirate Fest so you can do business with them!! We are placing them on the web site. Click on the VENDORS ATTENDING tab and you can go to their web sites and do a little window shopping before the faire!!
We mentioned the sword fighting in the Steampunk area. YES we will have a Steampunk area!! It's part of our own Legend (Click LEGEND and read the story) So all you Steampunk enthusiasts have a new HOME!!! A festival where
you are not only welcome, but written right into the fabric of the faire itself!! And you are not alone!! We are "Faerie Friendly"
also!! The Legend has the pirates dropped in the middle of a Faerie Realm so there will be faerie related vendors and even
entertainment!! We even have our own Faerie Co-ordinator!!!! See it's that important!!
