Sorry for not posting this here soon, but me deckhands plum forgot about this port of call.

Depends on how you define a few I guess (there were lots of people that remember ORF fondly).  Some of our crew (cast, performers, volunteers) were at ORF either as dedicated patrons or in similar positions.

We have a number of vendors that had booths at ORF, but at the same time a much larger contingent of vendors that were not.  And of the 4 people who are the management team behind this years Pirate Festival 2 of them had booths at ORF, and the other two applied the year it was closed.

I've heard from a number of people that I remember from ORF that will be coming out to at least visit the Pirate Festival for a day this year ... so I'd say that there will be some of the ORF crowd there.  Come on out and enjoy the party :)

Captain Dugyn and Lady Orphena will be there bedecked to the gills. (and a little higher too!)

We are looking forward to it! Captain Dugyn will have new threads to show off - procured from a trading trip - or so he told his Lady.

We shall be wandering the faire, so if you do sight us, do feel free to hail us and meet Rover and Roger.

If I recognize anyone, I will certainly say hi.  I will be there on Monday, as I'm leaving for GLMF in a couple hours.  For Pirate Fest I will be wearing a black skirt, gold overskirt, and black and gold corset/bodice.  And I will be towing a family behind me......lol.

Help!

My wife is convinced that we are going to be the only ones at the Pirate Festival in costume, and is threatening to go in ...gasp... real life clothing (the horror, I'd wear tights every day if I could...)


Please, anyone that has been there before, help me soothe my wife's fears and tell me that we won't be the only ones (aiming for Sunday, since Saturday is forecasting rain)

Alacrity - reassure your wife! I've attended this festival since it's beginning, and the majority of people dress up - some completely - but by far the majority are wearing something piratey!

I've seen grandparents dressed up with ripped jeans and bandanas - little kids sporting all kinds of costumes, and everyone in between with sashes and such! You will feel very much at home in costume, I promise you!

There are many who also wear ren wear with a piratey hat and say ahoy all day! Tis more fun in garb!
