Pirate Party in Georgetown celebrates end of summer

August 12, 2017 by  

The city of Georgetown, Texas, celebrated the end of summer with its annual Pirate Party.

Held on August 4, the party took place at the Georgetown Recreation Center Outdoor Pool on Austin Ave, and regular pool rates were charged for attendees.

Focusing on those between two and eight years old, the pool party included opportunities to swim, as well as treasure, games, and a raffle drawing. The party also offered sponsorship opportunities for local businesses. These included sponsoring food or beverages at the party, offering prizes or giveaways, shirts, and decorations or costumes at the party itself. This sort of event can be a great opportunity for companies to use promotional products like custom drinkware or other items to build their brand.

Sponsors for this year’s event include Sonic, Edible Arrangements, Raising Cane’s, and Pinot’s Palette. The party also offered volunteer opportunities, for both individuals and groups. Students looking to complete volunteer hours can often find events like this useful, while groups from businesses can volunteer wearing company T-shirts to also spread awareness of their company and mission.

Companies interested in sponsoring this event next year, or one of the other events held by the Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department should contact the department directly. Cost of sponsorship is listed on the website for all events. Residents can also stay informed from the park department about when the Pirate Party will be held in 2018.
