Beaufort, NC (August 7-8, 2015):  Friday and Saturday will welcome a host of talent from the entertainment and media industry to gather at the waterfront in downtown Beaufort for the annual Beaufort Pirate Invasion.

Big names in the industry will rub shoulders in the historical setting as buccaneers mingle with the public in the festival.  Among those most familiar with pirate festivals and Caribbean history is author, Jaye Helm who will be signing books, providing photo opportunities, and meeting her fans at Old Beaufort Shop on Turner Street in Beaufort, NC.
