Imagine…

The year is 1818 and you and your family are infamous pirates that plunder the Great Lakes. News reaches you of a Pyrate Fest that is half a days journey to the east. You hear how it is an event filled with family fun activities and other fellow pirates.

You raise the sails and set course immediately for Put-in-Bay! Upon arrival you raise the Pirate Flag in DeRivera Park and walk the streets to experience all that is Pyrate Fest.

To your surprise there are magicians, fire jugglers, and educational tales that immediately capture the children’s attention. You and the misses grab a drink and share tales of your Great Lake excursions with other fellow Pirates.

After 2 days of fun events, great food and drink, and very convincing magic tricks you decide to join the annual 5K to get that pirate booty back in shape! As you and your family set sail you can’t wait for next years festival.
