SUMMER: ‘Scaled-down’ Seafair Pirates Landing at Alki on Saturday

(2019 Seafair Pirates Landing photo by David Hutchinson)

If you haven’t already seen it in our calendar – the Seafair Pirates Landing returns to Alki Beach on Saturday (June 25th). But it’s a “scaled-down” version of the event, Seafair tells us – no vendors, but, “There still will be a PA system for commentary and the usual shenanigans.” They’re expected to land around 1:30 pm, “storming the beach to steal the key to the city,” says Seafair. This time around they’re under the skullduggery of the incoming Captain Kidd, Michael “Mouthfish” Brown, who’s taking the wheel from the outgoing Captain Kidd, Damian “Terrible” Terrell. Remember there’ll be offshore cannon fire as the Pirates approach, so the event’s not for the easily startled. If you’re new – the Seafair Pirates have sailed the summer seas of Seattle since 1949, and participate in countless parades and festivals as well as devoting time to various charitable deeds. Be mindful that 1:30 pm time is approximate – we advise not waiting till the last minute! The actual landing is usually in the vicinity of Alki Bathhouse.

      Why would this be a good use of police resources or necessary at family-friendly event at 1:30 pm????

        Because the last time a bunch of people descended on Alki Beach the police acted like there was an imminent threat of a hostile invasion force of murderers about to forcibly take over the neighborhood and burn it to the ground? Wait, something tells me that they might be treating this differently for some reason … hmm … what could it be … hmmm….. so hard to put my finger on it. Hmmmmmm…..

          A disingenuous strawman from Jort, what a surprise! ;)

        Umm, bet no one expected midday mass shootings at theatres, parks, elementary schools, churches, grocery stores either.

          Right and police presence (which was definitely at some of those events) would have prevented that how???

      We were minding our own business eating breakfast this morning at the Chelan Cafe when PIRATES invaded.  PIRATES!!!   A group of King County Sheriffs were at the next table and they did NOTHING to stop this invasion!  What have we come to???

    Dear Jort –  Chill out. It’s summer. Have a drink, smoke a joint, relax in the sun, enjoy your time on earth and maybe smile at people once in a while, you might not be so uptight all the time. Gonna be a beautiful day at Alki. Hope everyone has an awesome time with the pirates! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
