Talk Like a Pirate Day celebrated in Las Vegas

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Sep 19, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Today is the 11th International Talk Like A Pirate Day and Las Vegas is getting into the spirit.

Harrah's Carnaval Court is inviting all scallywags (must be 21, of course!) to attend their celebration beginning at noon today.

There will be drink specials with select rums, free commemorative "booty" (prizes and giveaways), a "Sing Like a Pirate" karaoke competition at 7 p.m., a sailor sing-a-long at 9 p.m. and a pirate booty-shaking contest at 11 p.m.

Krispy Kreme also has a special offer for the day. Anyone who comes into one of their locations and talks like a pirate will receive one free original glazed doughnut.

If a Krispy Kreme customer comes in full pirate attire, they will receive one dozen doughnuts.

Talk Like a Pirate Day is not just for adults though, Gibson Library on Lake Mead Parkway in Henderson will host an event for kids ages 5 to 11 from 4 to 5 p.m. The event is free.
