The theme for this year's Bowser Bash event was "Pirates", inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The event was held at the Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center (formerly the Radisson Hotel), and featured lots of food and fun for everyone. There were great items included in the silent and live auctions.
Plenty of booty greets those boarding this adventure.
It was all fun and games until the pirates showed up!
Lot's of action!
