Pirate Fest is a unique festival based on its own legend. It involves pirate, steampunk and faerie/fantasy characters in the storyline. It is a very participatory type event. The motto being "Don't just watch the pirates...BE the Pirate!"
The fest includes entertainment, vendors, food, music and this year we have added the Zappos Cardboard Regatta.
People can build boats or "floaty things" entirely out of cardboard, glue, duct tape and paint and race them in the lake at Lorenzi Park! You can compete for overall trophies but you can also issue a "Personal Challenge". Challenge at competitor, another department in your company or maybe another location! Certificates issued the the winners of the Personal Challenge.
Pirate Fest- come for the RUM...stay for the cleavage!!
