Avast, me hearties! In celebration of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Seaport Village is hosting the third annual Landlubbers Day, a festive celebration of all things pirate!
We encourage young and old to throw on their best pirate attire for a day of eye patches, parrots and walking the plank!
Held Saturday, September 16 from noon to 4:00 PM, the free event features live music from the Jackstraws, San Diego's own pirate-themed band; a "Talk Like a Pirate" and costume contest for all ages (including a new category for furry four-legged friends); arts and crafts activities for buccaneers; a mermaid grotto with mermaids available for photos; Street performances from swashbuckling buskers; and pirate's booty food and drink specials from the Seaport Village restaurants and shops.
So don your finest eye patch and pirate garb and join in the fun!
Lads and lassies of all ages are encouraged to don their finest eye patches and pirate garb for a chance to win prizes. At 2 p.m., the costume and “Talk Like a Pirate” contests will kick off, where prizes for best costume and best pirate accent will be awarded to entrants in a number of age categories. Four legged scallywags will also have a chance to compete with a new pet costume category added this year. The contest is limited to the first 20 contestants in each category, and sign ups begin at noon. Landlubbers Day also includes a mermaid grotto featuring photo opportunities with beautiful mermaids, and live street performances from a number of Seaport Village’s talented buskers – from sword swallowers to rock balancers – along the boardwalk.
