I just downloaded these pictures from my camera. The Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival is HUGE here, and lots of fun. It lasts for about a week or more, but we went to the clash of the pirates and the fireworks. Kennedy thought it was all a little crazy and thought it weird that people were all dressed up as pirates. We had no idea what to expect. Local residents batten down the hatches in preparation for the invasion of the infamous yet ever popular, Captain Billy Bowlegs for weeks. Captain Billy Bowlegs, along with his Queen, visit the local schools trying to persuade local youngsters to join his Motley Crew. Captain Billy and his Crew invade Fort Walton Beach at the Annual Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival. Although Captain Billy’s record stands at 51 wins and 0 losses, nothing is a sure thing when it comes to the city militia. Fort Walton Beach Mayor, and the brave Militia are not about to give up control of the city without a fight. The local Air Force Special Operations guys also get involved. I guess it’s just one of those things you have to see to believe. IT’s CRAZY!! We still have pirate flags flying all over the city!
