Pirates in the Park – Sea Festival 2014

White Rock Sea Festival, Pirates in the Park (65th year, 2014)

It was the 65th celebration for the Sea Festival and the Kidz Zone in the beautiful Semiahmoo First Nation Park. Everything was awesome! With Capt’n Korki at the helm, and MC’d by Max Tell, the two day ‘green, free’ festival was one of the most memorable.It was a weekend of family festivity with amazing weather and an awesome turnout. Welcomed by JoAnne Charles, and our Mayor Baldwin, the little pirates and princesses paraded up Marine Drive along with the colourful band, Fanny Starchild and the Mystiques, to the beautiful Semiahmoo Park.

On a hot august day, the protective shade and intimate atmosphere ignited in a spirit of festivity. The Semiahmoo Park is situated on East Beach and was graciously hosted by our Semiahmoo First Nation people, complete with a traditional salmon BarBQ. From a distance one could see the rolling hills, the magnificent old trees. One could see a big inflate able jumping castle, tents, and bubbles galore.

The winners of the best pirate costume was picked by Mayor Baldwin, which he loved because it was a family of three generations. There was Ariel the Mermaid, the Teddy bear Picnic and march and continuous live entertainment for the children on the Spirit Stage throughout the day. Clowns, sounds, little pirates and princesses, mascots, magic, face painting, balloon twisting, petting zoo, hula hoops, and bubbles galore.
