St. Peter’s Pirate Days!

Thurs, Sept 14 to Sun, Sept 17, 2017

Ahoy mateys – St. Peter’s is the place to be for Pirate Days celebrations!  Join in on this annual event with the St. Peter’s community and businesses while finding your inner pirate. There are four days of fun activities scheduled for all ages. Scuttlebutt has it that pirates from far and near will be visiting. So come to St. Peter’s mateys, by land or sea, September 14 – 17, and celebrate Pirate Days with us.  But keep your wits about you – you don’t want to be shanghaied!

Check out our Facebook Page and the St. Peter’s Pirate Days 2017 Schedule of Events to keep up to date.

And maybe learn to Talk like a Pirate.

One great idea the committee has come up with this year to help with the cost of the event is the St. Peters Pirate Days Treasure Chest, which is a new game of chance. Those who would like to play and to support Pirate Days can register a number, which will be yours for the next 52 weeks. Play your number for $2 each week. Half of the bounty collected each week is the prize payout. For more details on the draw and to register stop in at B&E General Store in St. Peter’s.

These are the 2016 community participation awards. You could be a winner in 2017!
