PDXYAR, and some good mates, will be providing a decidedly pirate flare to this great event.  Some of the morning’s piratical highlights include:

  • PDXYAR will be presenting a sword battle demonstration as well as musket salute to kick off the sailing event.
  • We will be joined by Luc the Lucky and Margot La Mechante de Marseilles, the organizers of the Portland Pirate Festival, who will be providing music during the morning.
  • We will also be joined by Captain Morrigan Quicksilver, of Quicksilver’s Pirate Pots
  • Randy Gardner of Parrots 4 Show will be on-hand with his flock of live parrots

During the evening’s reception, loosen your purse strings for making donations and partake in various carnival-style games run by, of all things, pirate carnies.  Included in that will be a Liar’s Dice challenge.  Our very own champion will take on all comers with prizes and glory on the line!

Stay tuned throughout the day to not only PDXYAR.org, but follow us on Twitter and visit our Facebook page for updates.
