Pirate Invasion, Long Beach, CA – 3 JUL 2011

I heard there was gong to be a Pirate Invasion & Faire on the Belmont Veterns Memorial Pier…since I was meeting Eve for lunch in Long Beach, we decided to check out the Faire.

There were a few people in costume, a few food vendors and several vendors selling a number of pirate items and trinkets that are irresistible to children.

Not sure what Buddha was doing at a Pirate Faire.

Tinky Winky got into the spirit of the day.

Not a single parrot (fake or real) but there was a live pirate rat.

Only in Los Angeles, do the pirates look like models:

It was time to leave when TW had his life threaten.
