Feast of the Pirates held for first time in Belville

BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — Swords, eyepatches, and jolly rogers were common sights in Belville yesterday during the Feast of the Pirates.

The Wilmington Harbor Enhancement Trust has been doing pirate events in downtown Wilmington since 2005.

This year, they decided to move the Feast of the Pirates to the Brunswick Riverwalk Park in Belville.

Crowds of people young and old came out to see if the phrase “A pirate’s life for me” would hold true.

“Decided this year to bring it across the bridge so that the Brunswick County communities could enjoy some pirate fun and entertainment and it’s a great family event,” said Stephanie Fornes of WHET.

The town of Belville has already reached out to WHET about bringing the Feast of the Pirates back next year.

The organization also will be holding a pirate festival in Southport next September.
