Cayman Pirates Week - What a Time

Light Up the Sky

A thrilling fireworks display over George Town harbour signals the start of the excitement. Thousands are there lining the roadway for the spectacle in the sky... come early... come casual... come to enjoy... stay for the Songfest by the sea and dance to Caribbean bands until the wee hours.

Pirates Ashore

It's late afternoon and three sailing ships full of costumed marauders invade the island, grabbing the Governor and igniting one week of frolic.

What a Parade

For a couple of hours before sunset, it's parade time along Harbour Drive... colourful floats, some with live music, costumes and walking groups, taking over the town with all the colour and creativitiy and rhythm of the Caribbean... one sweet bacchanal! Bring your camera!

Move to the Music

Oh yes... the music! The nights in Pirates Week are for partying to live Caribbean music... open air... near the sea... with plenty of food and drink at hand... Just watching the dancers is fun... and that happens, minus Sunday, for 8 straight nights - 3 in town, 5 in the country - party time, man!

Heritage Days

Starting on the first Monday of Pirates Week, we have six Heritage Days in six different corners of Grand Cayman. Traditional culture and art are on display from noon to 6pm, with the night time given over to an open-air Street Dance with Caribbean tempos. Before 7pm it's free; admission to the dance is about $5.

The Sporting Life

Pirates Week in Cayman also caters to the sports minded with two swimming races (one in the sea), two golf tournaments, and three road races, each with modest entrance fees. There is also an Underwater Treasure Hunt for both the scuba and snorkel crowd.

The Younger Crowd

For the very young set, a Kids' Fun Day in George Town, on the first Sunday, with drinks, snacks, entertainment and 5 fancy bicycles to be won in a draw... free admission!
For the teenagers, the Leos Club organizes two nights (first and last Saturday) of today's music, no alcohol, security in place. Time to mingle. Free Admission.

What an Ending

A comical Trial of the Pirates, and a final open air Street Dance by the harbour, signals the end of the Festival. At the closing midnight hour, a visiting Californian says, "I can't wait for the next year."
