If, come the weekend of June 14th and 15th, you’re going to be on Long Island, New York, and then find yourself within a few leagues of the port of West Sayville, you should try and check out Long Island’s First Annual Pirate Festival that weekend. Hosted by Ye Pyrate Brotherhood in conjunction with and at the Long Island Maritime Museum, the event promises a gathering of re-enactors, vendors and purveyors of piratey education and entertainment.
