If you’re visiting Smith Mountain Lake during the weekend of July 18th-July 20th, then you might notice some strange characters wandering about the area in search of buried treasure. Fear not, for you’ve just discovered a fun event that’s quickly becoming one of SML’s most anticipated events…Smith Mountain Lake Pirate Days.
Beginning July 18th, participating businesses will outfit their staff in their best pirate garb and embark on a fun-filled adventure of treasure hunts and special pirate events including the Blimey Battle of Bridgewater which takes place on Saturday, July 19th at 2pm.
So how do you know which businesses are participating? Simply look for the Jolly Roger flag (skull and crossbones) flying high above the doorway and enter for some pirate-themed entertainment!
