The city of Portland, OR does love it’s pirates. On any given day you are likely to see one walking down the street. But, on September 20th, at the annual Pirate Festival the city showed the world just how much it loves pirates, by breaking the Guinness Book world record for the most pirates gathered in one place.
“The current record for the most people dressed as pirates is 1,140, set at Heide-Park, in Germany, on 6/2/2007. Portland Pirate Festival draws enough scallywags decked out in Pirate finery, will be sure to break the record for the most people d…ressed as pirates gathered in one location.”
THE CURRENT RECORD IS NOW BROKEN!! 1655 pirates (including Lauren and Hannah) at the Portland Pirate Fest 9/20/2009 Arrr matties!
