FORT WALTON BEACH, FL (April 18, 2023) – The 67th Annual Billy Bowlegs Torchlight Parade will be held
on Monday, May 22nd, 2023 starting at 7:00 p.m. on Eglin Parkway from First Street to Hughes Avenue. Throughout the weekend of the parade, there will be live music and entertainment, fireworks, and plenty of food and drink available at the festivities during the 67th Annual Billy
Bowlegs Pirate Festival.

The 67th Annual Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival kicks off with the Skirmish, where Captain Billy Bowlegs and his Honor Guard come to the Fort Walton Beach Landing on Friday, May 19th, 2023. The Mayor of Fort Walton Beach and his Police Force are prepared and have promised to arrest Captain Billy if he tries to land.

On Saturday, May 20th, Captain Billy will return with his entire Krewe, his friends, and the visiting Krewes from
across the county after his defeat the night prior. The Mayor will unleash a secret weapon to try and stop him
from landing, but it will be no match for the overwhelming presence of Captain Billy’s forces. The Captain is sure to
prevail and will take over the City.

Finally, on Monday night, May 22nd, there will be the Victory Torchlight Parade sponsored by Step One Automotive
Group. The parade will be anchored by Captain Billy and his Krewe of pirates marching down the street to celebrate
Captain Billy Bowlegs’ 67th Annual capture of Fort Walton Beach.
