pirates week

Visiting Grand Cayman coinciding with Pirate's Week this year. Looking forward to the fun and festivities. Anyone care to share about their experiences during that week? What was the best, what to avoid?

I have been a couple times, but never ventured to any of the events in George Town. I loved going to the District Days in North Side, East End and Bodden Town. Good music, good food, traditional Cayman crafts and lots of friendly people!

I've been going every year for about 15 years. Go to the Pirate invasion and all the events...its a blast.

We are coming in on the 19th - I've heard there are fireworks on the 20th? Anyone care to comment on typical time, place, and quality of said fireworks? We'll be staying in East End, not sure if we'll want to drive in to see them.

I will be staying at the Grandview on the 20th. Will I be able to see the fireworks from the beach there?

Don't even think of going to the pirates trial the last day, simpily long and boring.

The band only plays for about an hour after the trial, then everyone basically stands around doing nothing.

The cardboard boat races the last day are fun to watch, but it is to hot in Georgetown.

I would give the last day fireworks a miss.
