Arrr, the pirates are planning to invade Guelph as their latest target for fun and frivolity.
Shiver me timbers, the pirates have sailed back to Marden Park and renamed it Dry Bluffs for the Civic Holiday weekend, Aug. 5 to 7 daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There’s something for everyone at the 11th annual Pirate Festival, from powder monkeys in training to old salty dogs and from gentlefolk to the scurviest bilge rats.

The area will be populated with a cast of colourful characters – a mixture of pirates and villagers that is sure to entertain.
Landlubbers needn’t worry and can head out with the kids to have their picture taken with the motley crew and hop aboard an inflatable bouncy pirate ship.
Antonio DeCoppi of Keelhaul Productions says come be a pirate for a day and “get caught up in the adventures of our colourful cast as they work around the scheming minds of those that would imprison them.”
