SCAdian joins the crew for Pirates of The High Seas Festival

Marcel Hildebrand is a pirate, or at least he was recently when he participated in the Pirates of The High Seas Festival at Pier Park in Panama City Beach, Florida. Scott Carroll of the News Herald spoke to Hildebrand and Steve Bailey, director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, when he visited the festival. (photo)

In addition to being a pirate, Hildebrand is a member of the SCA. He particularly enjoyed the reaction of children attending the festival. “I’ve seen a few kids that just had their mouths open in amazement when they’re seeing this,” he said.
