Perdido Key Pirate Fest
11am-5pm, Oct. 25-26, 2014
Big Lagoon State Park
No black flags fly above the turquoise waters of Perdido Key these days. Most of the time, the only pirates who frequent these parts are the Pirates of Lost Treasure, a local Mardi Gras krewe. However, all that will change on Oct. 25-26 2014, when an eager horde of young buccaneers descends on Big Lagoon State Park — for the annual Pirate Festival. The event comes a few weeks after International Talk Like a Pirate Day, on Sept. 19. So you can brush up on your pirate parlance before the big day.
The hunt for the "Lost Key"
Throughout the weekend, kids young and old will have the chance to hunt for pirate coins, redeemable for Thousands of Dollars in prizes. Each day, one lucky pirate, who finds the "Lost Key," will even take home a grand-prize treasure chest — loaded with everything a family needs for a memorable vacation, including lodging and gift certificates for area attractions and restaurants.
