考帕克利士替市(Corpus Christi)的海盗日
地方性遗产

每年,危险的海盗都会占领德州的考帕克利士替市!

但这些海盗是该市雇来庆祝海盗日的;海盗日是考帕克利士替市夏日海滩季节的前几日。海盗(Buccaneers)就是海上的强盗,1600年代时,他们会航行于海湾并攻击西班牙船只、商船及掠夺海湾附近的殖民地。现在,海盗会驶向陆地、捉住市长、逼迫他走到甲板上并宣布海盗日正式开始!

举办60年有余的海盗日会吸引120万人前来参加它连续24天的庆祝活动而马术竞赛会、竞赛、骑马及游戏博览会所募得的基金将会应用在奖学金及其他的市民计划上除此之外,国立管弦乐团音乐节则有6,000多名孩童共襄盛举。


Every year the city of Corpus Christi, Texas, is captured by dangerous pirates!

But these pirates are actually hired by the city to help celebrate Buccaneer Days -- the opening days of the summer beach season in Corpus Christi. Buccaneers are pirates who used to sail in the Gulf and attack Spanish ships, other merchants and settlements in the area during the 1600s. Today, the Buccaneers sail in, capture the mayor and force him to walk the plank as he announces the arrival of Buccaneer Days!

Held for over 60 years, Buccaneer Days now draws more than 1.2 million people to its 24-day celebration. Fun-filled days of rodeos, races, rides, and carnival games help raise funds to finance scholarships and many other civic programs. In addition, a national orchestral music festival brings the participation of more than 6,000 children.
