Cayman Islands' Pirate Week

Cayman Islands' Pirate Week

Other countries celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, but one day isn't enough for the Caymans, which take a whole week to enact swashbuckling scenes from the islands' colonial era.

Live music, fireworks displays, food stalls, are part of the daily schedule of activities during Pirate Week, and there are treasure hunts and fair-type rides and activities for kids.

The highlight, though, is the staged pirate invasion, which involves two ships sailing into the George Town Harbour and the subsequent "capture" of the governor.
