In many cities, it would be out of the ordinary to see a pirate walking around, nonchalantly minding his or her own business. In New Orleans, it’s become a ubiquitous occurrence, a fixture in New Orleans street performance culture. So it’s no surprise that there is an entire week devoted to pirates in New Orleans – NOLA Pyrate Week from March 23 – April 1. Mikko talks to the events director Stephanie McClain a.k.a. The Decatur Dragon about one of the week’s most exciting events, the Louisiana Pyrate Wench Pageant.
