A call goes out to every seafaring wench and buccaneer at heart to march and be noticed in the 11th Annual "Pirate Festival Parade" to be held on July 7th, 2007 at 12:00 noon in the town of Olcott, New York.
Here's a chance for all you fencers out there to show off your skills with a little swashbuckling action while jugglers can astound the crowd with your hand precision down the parade route. Not a fencer or juggler you say? Well not to worry, pirate garbed persons are needed to march along side the 16 ft. float to wave and distribute goodies to the crowd or sit aboard ifn' ye can't march.
Since this is a pirate festival, all parade attendees are asked to wear pirate/wench looking garb to add to the festivities. The float and parade attendees must be in the staging area in Krull Park at the soccer field no later than 11:00am on Saturday for check-in and route position. I have been told we are scheduled for an early spot on the route this year. We will be assembling at the Otterskeep Ranch located at 2411 Hosmer Road, in Barker, New York 14008 no later than 10:30am to drive to the staging area or you can drive to the Krull Park soccer fields and meet us. Directions provided upon request or just use map quest.
As years before, an "After-the-Parade-BBQ" is planned for all parade attendees & friends back at the Ranch probably starting around 4pm, depending on the length of the parade. An R.S.V.P. is requested by July 5th whether you will just be in the parade or attending the party afterwards at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome to share this fun day! The property is spacious and as in past years, we have had delightful outbreaks of fencing, HW, TW and archery as well as swimming in the pond, fishing and lawn games. So be sure to pack your gear accordingly.
The festival starts on Friday July 6th thru Sunday the 8th featuring rides, food, merchants, live music, pirate troops & players and of course the parade. Hours are: Fri. 6pm to midnight, Sat. 12noon to midnight & Sun. 12noon to 8pm. Live music all weekend at the Olcott Lions Pavilion in Krull Park (schedule to be announced). The Krull Olcott Development Committee sponsors this event as an Olcott Fire Co. annual fundraiser. Join us and let your inner pirate out! AAARRR!!!!!!
