Rain doesn't wash away pirate fest

A wedding at Central Park forced the pirates to Loutit District Library's parking lot, and a thundershower Saturday afternoon forced them indoors to the library. "It was drenching rain,' said Andrea Jones, one of the vendors at the Michigan Pirate Festival. "However, being pirates, we're used to life aboard ship - and being on the sea, we get wet. So we're used to it.' The library closed at 5 p.m. Saturday, sending the pirate fest back outside to the library's parking garage.

“We adapt,” said Admiral Morgan Ramirez, who is really Stella Tuczak of Niles. “We’re pirates. We roll with the changes, baby.”

The Michigan Pirate Festival and the weeklong pirates week hosted by the Grand Haven library and Brethren of the Great Lakes wraps up Sunday. Weather permitting, the festival will take place in the library’s parking lot at Columbus Avenue and Fourth Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
