One of the largest spring events in Eastern Carolina takes place in Greenville this weekend, and this year it has a new significance.
The purple and gold pigskin pig-out at East Carolina University joined forces with the city of Greenville to hold what is now called Pirate Fest.
The inaugural event starts Friday evening in accordance with the International Festival and now Uptown Greenville. There are more events outside of the campus to attend. Organizers hope the Pirate Fest will be the new signature event in the area, which brings alumni and fans together for the spring football scrimmage.
