Million Pirate March at Bay To Breakers


Ahoy, Matey! The Million Pirate March takes place this Sunday, May 18th in San Francisco, where the pirates will proceed to invade the Bay to Breakers race.

On May 18, 2008 history will be made when up to 1,000,000 pirates will march forth toward the sea in San Francisco, California. This is a time to affirm our love of pirates, parrots and even wooden peg legs.

Never before have pirates joined together peacefully in such large numbers to celebrate… well… being pirates.

This momentous occasion also happens to coincide with the annual Bay to Breakers event which will be held on the same day, at the same time and on the same route as us pirates will take on our journey to the ocean. This means we will probably blend in with all the other regular folks who might happen to be dressed as pirates anyway.
