It’s not every day that you see a pirate eating a soft scoop ice cream on the seaside pavement of Rhos-on-Sea, at least unless it’s pirate weekend of course. Walking across the town you’ll find pirates looking for treasure across town.
The costume competition really brought up the best of the best looking pirates that Rhos had to offer from unicorn pirates to a pram turned pirate ship the competition was intense, a great amount of effort given by all.
After the tense competition comes a relaxing jolly band playing tunes that almost make you feel like you’ve set sail from the great band. If you’re feeling scurvy on your adventure never fear for there’s always a lovely glass of homemade lemonade on offer.
So next time you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not come to your local pirate weekend, you might even find the hidden treasure!
