Join the Bath Blackbeard Parade October 20

Three hundred years ago Blackbeard walked the streets of Bath. On October 20, 2018, we invite young people and their families to walk in the footsteps of the famous pirate and his most trusted shipmates from the Pamlico region in a parade commemorating Bath’s Blackbeard Tricentennial, sponsored by The Greater Bath Foundation and the Town of Bath.

The parade will begin shortly after 11:00 a.m. at Bonner Point following the roar of cannon. The world’s tallest Blackbeard will lead the parade north up Main St., turning right on Craven St., and ending near St. Thomas Church. At the conclusion of the parade, we will gather for a historic photograph of the world’s largest gathering of Blackbeards. The day, and the photograph are expected to become a part of Blackbeard lore for generations into the future.

In order to set a record for the world’s largest gathering of Blackbeards, we are encouraging as many pirate parade participants as possible to try to include a black “beard” in their costume. The “beard” can be simply made using construction paper. Instructions for how to make the beard can be found at https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2009/03/naptime-creation-3.html. Other pirate-like costume features are up to the participants such as bandanas, tricorn hats, cardboard cutlasses, etc.

Free parking for parade participants and their families will be located in the field alongside King St. between Craven St. and Front St.

We thank you for helping to support the heritage of North Carolina’s First Town and First Port, and The Home of Blackbeard!
