Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal invade the Village and Port of Palmyra, New York during the ninth annual Palmyra Pirate Weekend, August 7-8, bearing a boatload of family-friendly fun for all ages.  Bed racing, Jolly Roger 5K, Pirate Kazoo Band Parade, children’s treasure hunt, Pirate Puppy Parade, canal trail tours, Historic Palmyra pirate tales and museum tours are just a few of the exciting events featured in this year’s celebration of Palmyra’s canal connection. 

The Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta returns, streaking straight through the heart of the historic Main Street business district.  Five-person pirate crews will compete head-to-head against other speedy scallywags and scoundrels for a cash prize and other awards. Pirates of all rank–the ranker, the better--are welcome to enlist, with local service, community organizations, and businesses expected to round out the racing field.  

The Grand Pirate Kazoo Band and Parade also returns to the streets immediately preceding all of the bed race action.  An official engraved Pirates of the Erie Canal Kazoo with lanyard, available for purchase on Friday, August 7, during the annual Palmyra Pirate Weekend kick-off event, a free outdoor screening of the modern classic pirate adventure The Goonies, is your ticket to join the fun. Bed racers will be pressed into parade service as they are escorted--and serenaded—up Main Street towards the Pillage ‘N the Village starting line near the Village Park.  

The Jolly Roger 5K run/jog/walk returns with its certified 5K Erie Canal course. This event raises funds for Pal-Mac High School’s award winning Select Choir, who enjoy a demanding concert schedule and a concert tour every to Greece next year!
