Mystina Cordua, 6, of Visalia waves her red Styrofoam saber while taking charge of the Willamina pirate ship on display at the Fresno Pirate Festival at Kearney Park Sunday. The Willamina is a copy of a 16th century Dutch yacht built by Wayne “Grandpa Morgan” Borning, an honorary member of the Under the Black Flag combat troupe, which put the ship on display for kids at the two-day event. The 11th annual festival moved from Roeding Park due to the zoo expansion and provided spectators with food vendors, a treasure hunt, belly dancers, jugglers, magicians, singers, and a pirate “skool” for kids.
