If you visit the Cayman Islands during the beginning of November you may be met with something a little strange. During the first three weekends of the month, the Cayman Islands celebrate their cultural heritage and pirate legends during the Pirates Week Festival.

 

The celebration kicked off Nov. 1, at Cayman Brac and ran until Nov. 3. That weekend was jampacked with history and celebration, starting with a pirate party where you can enjoy drinks and music. Dance the night away with friends and pirates. Other activities throughout the weekend included learning a little bit of the history of the islands and pirates, celebrating the Cayman history with heritage day, a pirate parade and fireworks

The following weekend, the party moved to Grand Cayman. This weekend included some different activities and some of the same. The weekend kicked off with the annual Golf Classic, that turned into a happy hour followed by another pirate party. Throughout the weekend, a 5K walk/run, a food festival, a fireworks cruise and a street dance were held.

 

This weekend, the festival ends in Little Cayman. Visitors are welcomed with fireworks and a kick-off party. Bring your pirate costume because there will be a contest. Enjoy a nice pirate float parade and much more.
