Portland Walking Tours

Avast! It be World Record Settin’ Time Again!

September 17th, 2010

In case you didn’t know, September 19th is now “official” Talk Like A Pirate Day. For some, it has become a cherished Portland holiday, second only to Halloween… and possibly Naked Bike Ride night.

In celebration of Talk Like A Pirate Day this weekend is the 2010 Portland Pirate Festival. It is a family-friendly… ahem… Pirate family-friendly event. So head up to the attic, dig out the ol’ cutlass, slap on an eye patch, pick out bandannas for the whole family and head out to Cathedral Park (beneath the St. Johns Bridge) for some pirate-themed fun. There will be pirate demonstrations, music, games and more…. including an attempt to take back the Guinness Book World Record for “Largest Gathering of Pirates.”

For more info about the event and tickets see the Official Portland Pirate Festival site.
