Enter the gates and feel transported to the Age of Piracy!!
The year is 1674. The place is Port Royal, Jamaica. Sir Henry Morgan, aka Captain Morgan, is enjoying a wealthy semi-retirement as the Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. His exploits as a British privateer during their war against the Spanish made him a national hero.
With Port Royal enjoying peace and prosperity, Captain Morgan is hosting a festival in honor of his daughter, Gabriella’s, 20th birthday. All are invited — especially YOU!
But trouble looms on the horizon in the form of a young Spaniard, Diego Montoya, who is out for revenge. The young man blames Captain Morgan for the death of his father, Captain Carlos Montoya, who perished at the Battle of Panama. Sparks and steel fly at Combat Croquet! Who will win?
Come in costume if you wish and enter the costume contest. Strut your stuff to join a pirate crew. Learn to talk like a pirate, savvy? Play games. Get your picture taken with a mermaid or scallywag. Shop the merchant village for unique treasures. Come hungry and thirsty for delicious food and drinks–including beer.
RRR you ready for hours of family fun?! (Rated G-PG) Yar, Matey!!!
