The Cayman Islands hosts an annual Grand Cayman Pirates Week Festival - although it's called Pirates Week, it's actually 11 fun-filled days with parades and fireworks costume contests, music, street dancing, various competitions, Heritage Days.

Pirate's Week festivities in the Cayman Islands start with a mock "pirate invasion" from the sea. Two old-time sailing vessels - including the famous Jolly Roger - loaded with friendly "pirates" make a Saturday surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbor with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands of people line the streets to participate in the spectacle or just watch and enjoy the festivities.

Cayman Islands Pirate's Week commences with fireworks, followed by a local song contest and then, almost every day for 11 straight days, Caribbean rhythms pulsate in open-air street dances until the wee hours of the morning.

Cayman Islands Pirates Week is the only event of its kind in the entire Caribbean region.
