Join the Pirates of the High Seas Fest October 9–11!
2015 Pirates of the High Seas Fest
A fun time for the whole family! If you’re Goin’ to the Beach this Columbus Day Weekend, why not have a swashbucklin’ good time? The annual Pirates of the High Seas Fest promises to be fun for the whole family, with treasure hunts, parades, music, and more. The main events take place at Pier Park outdoor shopping center, and the marinas at Grand Lagoon—all just steps or a short drive from Resort Collection’s 10 unique beach properties.
Visit Panama City Beach presents the festival each year along with the Krewe of Dominique Youx. Don’t forget to stick around for the awesome fireworks displays each night! See full schedule below.
Pirate garb and swag are encouraged, so break out the bandanas, eyepatches, and shoulder parrots. And don’t forget your trusty sword or musket (toys only, please), because you never know when some rival buccaneers might invade the town!
