PirateFest dates announced

The Pirates announced today that PirateFest will be held the weekend of December 15-16. It will located at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, as usual. The festival will be open to the general public from noon to 7:00 pm on Saturday the 15th and from noon to 5:00 pm on Sunday the 16th. It appears that Friday will once again be opening night, exclusively for season ticket holders:

From pirates.com’s Fan Forum:

“Don’t miss free autographs from manager Clint Hurdle and your favorite Pirates, Q&A sessions with players, Pirates alumni and broadcasters, information on 2013 Pirates Season Ticket packages, youth baseball & softball clinics, games, contests, prizes and much more.”

Tickets will go on sale this Thursday, November 1st.

The question & answer session with Pirates management is always popular, and should be even more entertaining this year with ‘Hoka Hey’, the past two collapses, etc. The players were much more accessible and roaming the convention center floor last year (on Friday night at least), so hopefully that’s the case again. We’re looking forward to another fun PirateFest that aids our Bucco withdrawal.
