Columbus: Talk Like a Pirate Weekend

Columbus Ohio from the Santa Maria

It's Talk like a Pirate weekend at the Santa Maria in Downtown Columbus, September 17 to the 18th, 2011. 

I took these photos  a couple of years ago when we went down to the Santa Maria on Talk Like a Pirate Day.  

The Santa Maria website promises:

  "Talk like a Pirate Weekend: 11-5pm Saturday and Sunday. Pirate re-enactors from around the country will bring their colorful language and manners to the ship for lots of fun and frolic."

  Crows Nest Santa Maria



The official National?  International?  "Talk Like a Pirate Day" is always the 19th of September, we'll be way ahead of the rest if Columbus says "Arrrrr!" all weekend! 

Here's a site to help you with the words to use to Talk like a pirate

Language  - Look for the page titled  "Why talk like a pirate - and how"


"Ahoy!" means  "Hello!"

"Arrr!" is multipurpose...

Inquiring minds probably says Why? Why Talk like a Pirate?

The page titled "Why talk like a pirate - and how" says:

"The point is, there is no point."

I've lived in Columbus most of my life and wasn't aware of this particular event. Very interesting.

Gita today is Talk like a Pirate day?  I saw a Tweet saying it is tomorrow but I believe it is always the 19th.  Our local floating museum is just making use of an asset floating on the Scioto River in downtown Columbus.  I was downtown on Saturday but never made it that far west.  I saw a few pirate re-enactors walking around further east, there was lots going on downtown this weekend.  I would think pirate re-enactors would be hard to come by in the midwest.   We have lots of Civil War re-enactors... but I would think pirate re-enactors would be in Florida...  maybe SC and Georgia coasts....

Bernadine  The Santa Maria celebrating it is probably only 4 or 5 years old.  I had never been to the Santa Maria until Pirate Weekend 2009.  I had seen it there off the bank at Red, White and Boom etc. knew it was a floating museum.
