One of the central elements of the upcoming Pirates Week is the colourful float parade.
The spectacle comprises many different floats from district committees, private businesses and schools and the Pirates Week committee is calling for more people to get involved.
Displays and walking groups also participate in the event, which takes place the afternoon of Saturday, 10 November. Only a limited number of float entries can be accepted, but it is open to both people who live in the Cayman Islands, as well as overseas.

Districts, schools, non-competing pan groups and beauty pageant winners may take part for free.
