Each year, the Beaufort Pirate Invasion reviews the many request and applications submitted to choose the infamous most wanted line up. It has become quite competitive amongst our pirate crews to be chosen and featured on the cards.
These cards have become extremely popular commemorative items of sorts, along with the posters, and pirate flags among our visitors. Visitors of all ages love to collect the cards and roam through the invasion looking for the pirates to get signatures of those featured. Once they collect all the signatures of the Beaufort’s Most Wanted they turn them in for special pirate treasures.
To be chosen for this role is an honor. You will be face to face with children of all ages who come to our festival. We consider this position one of an Ambassador for the Beaufort Pirate Invasion. This year, because of many requests to be on card, 12 pirates will be chosen randomly by a drawing from applicants accepted from all applications.
