Organizers of the annual Three Rivers Water Festival community celebration announced last week that a pirate theme has been designated for the 2012 event.
“Ahoy, TR,” is the theme to be incorporated into the parade and other aspects of the 56th annual festival.
Long considered the unofficial start of summer, the Three Rivers Water Festival is set to take place June 14-16. The parade is slated for June 14, with a rain date of June 15. Potential participants are encouraged to center their entry on a pirate theme, or keep it relevant to boating or lake life.
Festival organizers said the roster of traditional favorites will return this year, including the car show, Lions Club ox roast, Women’s Club pie booth and KidsZone.
