Fodor's Expert Review Bill Johnston's Pirate Days

Alexandria Bay Festivals

During this 10-day festival in early to mid-August, pirates invade the village of Alexandria Bay for two weekends, and the mayor hands the keys to the city over to these marauders. Midweek festivities include music and other entertainment. Bill Johnston, for whom the event is named, was an 1830s pirate who looted ships near the city.
