(WNCT) Organizers say Beaufort’s annual Pirate Invasion will happen when North Carolina is in reopening phase three.
This would have been the weekend for the annual three-day celebration of the East’s pirate heritage.
In fact, organizers came up with the perfect theme, “the year of the plague”.
To recognize what is going on with COVID-19.
But they decided to postpone the festivities until the state relaxes restrictions — and crowds can return.
There will still be some events on Saturday, including t-shirt sales by Union Park and a 5 p.m. flotilla to honor the festival’s 60th anniversary.
Organizers hope to hold the invasion in mid-October.
