Pirates invade the town of Beaufort and the Maritime Museum for this annual event. Learn about life on the high seas, engage in family activities and games, and ward off pirates. Pirates attack the Beaufort historic waterfront by land and sea.  For two full days Beaufort is overrun with pirates, wenches, privateers and scallywags. These nefarious characters dressed in historical period attire from the 17th and early 18th centuries, roam the streets and shops, engaging in battles, bursting into song and recruiting aspiring pirates, young and old. The mayhem begins on Friday with sword fighting, cannons blaring, pillaging, and plundering. There will be storytelling, sea chanteys, cutlasses and black powder weapons displayed in the pirate encampment. Free Admission. No advance registration. Walk-ins welcome.  North Carolina Maritime Museum. www.ncmaritimemuseums.com.
