The festival is free. That's right, there is no charge to enter the festival and parking is free to at the Lake Charles Civic Center.

With the pirate festival upon us, we thought it would be fun to let you know what your pirate name is.

In a fun twist, you will just enter the first letter of your last name, the name of your pet, and what month you were born. When you enter all that, you will find out your pirate name.

I did mine and my pirate name is ONE-EYED BANDIT THE FREEBOOTER. Now that's funny. I did one for my wife using her maiden name and her pirate name is GRUBBY BANDIT THE MARAUDERE.

It's pretty fun and funny to see what it comes up with. Do you want to try it? Click here to see yours.
