If you enjoy studying pirates, both real and fictional, then PyrateCon is the place for you! With speakers, special guest, and vendors, all in a pirate theme, there is no place better than New Orleans to put this on! This year, there will be several celebrities from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, contestants from the "Pirate Master" television series, and events like a parade through the French Quarter, a masked ball, a pirate feast, a rum tasting, and lots more! If you can't make it this year (April 18-20, 2008) then check their website in the coming year for more information on PyrateCon 2009. See ya there, mate!
