Put up the spinnakers and set sail to Ojai for their Pirate Faire this weekend.
The Ojai Pirate Faire, taking place over two consecutive weekends this month, will celebrate all things piratical, from rum to cutlasses and from buxom lasses … probably back to rum. This September’s Faire, Ojai’s 17th annual pirate invasion, will include all of the above plus a myriad of other activities and entertainments, including something tantalizingly described in the event program as a “Bawdy Juggler.” And there will also be belly dancers, just in case the juggling isn’t sufficiently bawdy. - The Santa Barbara Independent
