PirateFest

A few weekends ago, we attended Piratefest. Piratefest is actually a combination of Greenville's International Festival and the Purple & Gold Pigskin Pigout Party. I think there is also an art show. We thought that Seth would get alot out of it considering that pirates are one of his current fascinations. The organizers had closed down Evans street from 5th Street to the Town Commons and the street was lined with vendors.

Pirates were strolling throughout the street and they would stop and talk to you and pose for pictures. We watched a bagpipe led parade of pirates and many folks were showing up dressed as pirates. Seth would only bring his feathersword and his American flag.

The city of Greenville unveiled the painted Pirates that will adorn businesses throughout the city. Different artists and organizations painted these pirate statues. I had a vested interest in this because Greene Central High School's art classes designed one of these pirates. It is the mosaic tile one in the center of picture that has "Arrrrrt!!" on the hat. The pirates were really pretty and they will look good around the city.
