  • June 30, 2018- Fathoms O'Fun Parade, Port Orchard. If you're looking for us in the parade, you're looking in the wrong place. Look for us insteadpre-rading around town earlier in the day and singing for our supper in local establishment while the parade courses its way through town.

  • July 4, 2018 - Edmonds 4th of July. ThePyrates of the Coast have been invited to raid this wonderful town on Independence Day. How can we resist? Should be a fun day in this great community Look for us before the parades begin on the route, not in the parade. We don't do no stinking parades!

At what other event would they let pirates enjoy wine in the Secretary of State's office or dance under the rotunda. A grand event for a great cause. Look for the pirates; it's a good hint that we are in farce, uh, force.
