For over 40 years it has become the country’s largest celebration, drawing some 35,000 patrons. It currently encompasses several events, which in the past have included street dances, district heritage days, a song contest, two running races, a sea swim, a Pirate Pooch Parade, a steel pan competition, a children’s fun day, a teen dance and underwater treasure hunt for divers.
The highlight of the festival includes a mock pirate invasion and float parade where they have a sword fight with the governor's red coat army before finally capturing the governor and parading their victory through the streets of George Town.
