Some pirates are more fearsome than others. This not-so-fearsome lineup competed in the kids costume contest Saturday at Rusty Scupper’s Pirate Daze in Westport. The three-day event takes place along Westhaven Drive at the Westport Marina. The celebration, includes music and other entertainment, games for kids, costume contests and lots of food and beverage choices all three days. It goes until about 10 Saturday night and lasts all day Sunday, concluding at 5 p.m. Some Sunday highlights: The professional pirates, wenches and scalawags costume contest at 10:45; the salty dog animal costume contest at 11:45; black powder demonstration at noon and at least a half dozen belly dancing performances throughout the day.
