Pirate News and Link Roundup!

Avast! Today be the last day of the Blackbeard Pirate Festival, featuring the Blackbeard's Crew re-enactment group in Hampton, VA.

Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah From Slave Ship to Pirate Ship is open in Philadelphia. It runs from May 31st to November 2nd, and its more of an exhibit than a festival. Click here to see the National Geographic page about the exhibition.

Why not spice up your next pirate ship or spanish fort diorama with a 10 foot life size fiberglass cannon from Largo Cargo? There's even a smoke option available. Great for creating your own pirate theme park ride scenery. (Or build your own cannon from foam if you have the time.)

deviantArt user mo013 has recreated the Pirates of the Caribbean (movie) logo in pencil (below). Great work!

deviantArt has lots of other great pirate artwork!
