LAS VEGAS (again)
Lorenzi Park April 25-27, 2014
The PIRATES RETURN !!!!! April 25,26,27 2014!!! BIGGER and BETTER!!!
Las Vegas' ONLY Pirate, Steampunk and Faerie Festival!!!
There will also be exciting new contests and competitions that will emphasize the participatory aspect of our festival!!! How about a Cardboard Regatta???? Maybe a Steampunk Airship Race??? Again...you don't just watch the pirates...your ARRRR the pirates!!!
Pirate Fest Las Vegas is a hands-on family oriented event!! Sponsored by Councilman Ricki Barlow and the City of Las Vegas, we featured music, entertainers, vendors, food, games, activities and more!! Here you won't just "watch" the Pirates...... you "ARRR" the Pirate!!!! If you like the Pirates of the Carribean, you'll love Pirate Fest Las Vegas Until then.. here is a little back ground info:
There is a story behind our Pirate Fest. Our own "history" if you will. It is the "Legend of the Pirates of The Dry Lands". Click on LEGEND for a taste of the backstory!! At Pirate Fest you will see and interact with the characters from the story but not just the back story, come see what has happened since everyone was cursed and ended up here!!
In fact this is the reason for Pirate Fest!! It is the anniversary of the Curse! Some feel that on the anniversary, if the proper conditions are met, they may be able to break the curse and return to the sea!! But they may need YOUR help!!! Pirate Fest is not just about pirates!
Pirate Fest is a fantasy festival. It seems as part of the curse, there were some fairies that were deposited here right with the pirates!!! They don't really like the pirates and have started to rebuild their own Faerie Realm!! They would like the pirates to break the curse...and leave!
One of the crew members is a bit of a tinkerer. So he begins building his contraptions using steam of course!! His is a more "gentlemanly" pirate. One of the Pirate Captain's takes him under his protection and his crew helps Thomas build his "airship" to escape the Curse and fly back to the seas!! Well..the Curse sent them crashing back to earth!! But they keep trying!!
So if your interests include Fairies or Steampunk, Pirate Fest is for you too! This isn't a normal fair or festival, here you don't just watch.... you participate!!
Need something new and exciting for the family to do? Maybe add a few things you might want to check off to your "bucket list"? The pirates think they may be able to break the curse...with YOUR help!! Come on out in April, the anniversary of the curse, and maybe with your assistance they can break the spell and return to the sea!! There will be games and activities here you will not see anywhere else! Pirate Fest will have it all!!
Pirate Fest will return to historic Lorenzi Park, tentatively the fourth weekend, April, 27,28,29 2014!! Lorenzi Park's renovation is complete and Pirate Fest will have access to the new lake and all the new amenities it has to offer!!
What is important to remember is the Pirate Fest is a living, breathing entity. You will not return next year and just see the same things you saw this year. The Pirates, Faeries and Steampunk characters will continue to live and interact during the course of the year we will be away. So it will be best to check on the web site...see how things progress. Then next year you can come see what the Pirates have been up to, and maybe NEXT year (with your help) they can break the CURSE!!!
