- The Portland Pirate Festival comes to St. Helens!
Anchoring in St. Helens for the first time, the 6th Annual Portland Pirate Festival is a two-day, family oriented event with historical reenactments, live music, cannon shows, games for the kids, hundreds of pirates roaming about, and many booths and displays.
Don’t miss the new addition of Mermaid Lagoon; wild costume parades lead by The Last Regiment Drummers and The Oregon Defense Force
Pipe Band; the comedy of Cap’n Chris the Hypnotist; Curtis Carlyle Seriously Funny Juggling, and the whip cracking Lefty Caress.
For the kids, this year’s lineup includes a host of family friendly entertainment, including the giant strolling puppets, interactive high energy children’s theater, puppet Shows, hands-on swordplay with Academia Duellatoria, scavenger hunts and interactive games with The Pirates of Puget Sound; cannon shows on Thunder Ridge; giant inflatable rides such as The Kraken and free balloons and face painting by beautiful mermaids!
