Cocoa Beach Pirate Festival Returns to International Palms Resort
The Cocoa Beach Pirate Festival is a free, family-friendly event geared up for scallywags both young and old and will feature live music from Keith Anthony Barbrie, For Love or Money, Skylar Green, and Lilly of the Valley performing near the beach on Mambo’s Stage during the weekend and performing upstairs inside the Manatee Ballroom, on both Saturday and Sunday, will be The Bawdy Boys, and Rusty Cutlass.
Get ready to shop and explore the various arts and crafts, and pirate themed vendors throughout the festival located both indoors and outdoors.
Little Pirates can stop by the “Pirate University” and learn firsthand from the Governess, how to become proper pirates. Keep your cameras ready, because if you are lucky, you can even meet a real mermaid as beautiful Mermaid Pearla can be found at times near the Pirate Ship Pool saying hello to all the young children. Featured piratical fun for the little pirates includes a Treasure Hunt on Saturday, and Water Cannon Battles with hundreds of cannonball water balloons in a 150,000-gallon Pirate themed kiddie pool both Saturday and Sunday.
