We were not back from the Suzuki 2009 product launch in Key Largo before we saw the skyline filled with old sails, and a lot of thirsty Pirates! The 2008 Hampton Blackbeard Festival was held this past weekend in downtown Hampton,and what a festival it was! These Pirates really put on a show with around the clock Piratical entertainment. This is a must see event that caters to families young and old.
This year Jim Baugh Outoors did something a little different at the Blackbeard Festival, we filmed the Pirate camp and featured "Cookie", the Pirate camp cook. Everything fixed was authentic to the time period of Blackbeard, all cooked over an open flame. The food was fantastic and old Cookie really knew his stuff.
Look in the July-August issue Jim Baugh column of Travel Virginia Magazine for the complete story and recipes. Below is a link to our current column in Travel Virginia Magazine and E Magazine, Destinations.
