SOUNDBITE(ENGLISH): JOSEPH ANSALVISH, Cosplayer
"It brings something where a lot of families can come and get a chance to see what real pirates could have been. We have made all of our outfits. We spoke the language that pirates actually spoke."

Pirates of the Caribbean have been a source of fascination for more than 300 years. All kinds of events were created based on the pirate culture and become very popular all over the world.

SOUNDBITE(ENGLISH): ANNABELL RACKHAM, Cosplayer
"The Pirate Festival is a way to get us on a crew out there to let everybody know that we are coming for them, that we'll never stop until we've hit every single port. And everybody shiver in their boots."
