Pirates of the High Seas Festival in Panama City Beach

Ahoy matey! Set sail for family fun this fall on Panama City Beach! The Pirates of the High Seas Fest returns to the beach for three days over Columbus Day weekend and promises a lot of fun for everyone in the family. The Pirates of the High Seas Fest is a free family-friendly festival that has really grown over the last several years and each year it gets bigger and better than ever before.

During the holiday weekend, Pier Park is taken over by pirates of all ages dressed in fun costumes! There will be parades to enjoy, sword-swinging showdowns, a beach ball drop, and a wonderful fireworks display. Pier Park is always adding new stores for shopping and new restaurants for eating and drinking and of course the brand new SkyWheel, a 200-foot-tall observation Ferris wheel located right in the heart of Pier Park!
