What to do on Ocracoke in October? Well, matey, you can put on your best pirate patch and head over to the inaugural Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree, being held Friday, Oct. 25 to Sunday, Oct. 27. There will also be some fun to be had over on Hatteras Island. There’s more info on this great article on the Ocracoke Current, and on www.piratejamboree.com.
“The centerpiece of the Jamboree is a historically accurate Pirate Encampment on Saturday, October 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by Blackbeard’s Pirate Crew, an 18-member living history organization from Hampton, VA., on the grounds of the historic Wahab House, 161 Irvin Garrish Highway in Ocracoke, NC. Dressed in historical costumes from the 17th and early 18th centuries, pirates will engage the audience with storytelling, sea chanteys and swordplay. Visitors will see demonstrations of vintage black powder weapons and partake in hearty seafarers’ grub and grog.”
