Fernandina Beach and Nassau County's Goodwill Ambassadors to the World!
A Mardi Gras Love Story
Pirates head to St. Mary's on Valentines Day to participate in the Mardi Gras parade and chili cook-off; this year's theme is "Love Story."
Pirates played a major role in the settlement of Amelia Island, Florida, and they're still around today. Founded in October of 1973, the Fernandina Pirates are a lively and active presence in this lovely coastal Florida community.
Although our primary focus is on promoting our annual 'Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival', we are also interested in the community at large and try to do our part to better life in our charming little seaport town.
