Ahoy me hearties! Crowds of people flocked to Felixstowe over the weekend for two days of swash-buckling pirate fun.
The popular pirates weekend saw a treasure trove of musket firing, a children's trail, live music and costumed characters at Landguard Fort.
Families were encouraged to attend in fancy dress and shiver me timbers - some of them even learned some pirate lingo.
Sunday was also international 'Talk Like a Pirate Day', with people given the chance to learn their landlubbers from their scallywags.
Tony Smith, volunteer at Landguard Fort, said the event was very well received by the public.
"It went brilliantly. The pirates have enjoyed themselves far too much and it's been well received by the public as well," he said.
"This has been put together in less than a week so I think they're looking to do a bigger event next year. It has gone down really well."
