77th Buccaneer Days Set to Sail

CORPUS CHRISTI - An annual event in Corpus Christi since the late 1930s, Buccaneer Days is once again set to invade the Sparkling City by the Sea.

This 77th celebration offers a variety of entertainment, including rodeos, musical performances, a carnival and parades. Other popular features of this long-standing event include the Dunking of the Mayor to kick off Buc Days, scheduled 6 PM Thursday, April 24th along the downtown bayfront, and the illuminated night parade, happening Saturday, May 3rd at 8 PM.

Also along the bayfront this Saturday, April 19th at 10 AM Mutton Bustin Mania will take place (Shoreline @ Park), where for a $25 donation to the Buccaneer Commission, little cowboys and cowgirls will be able to take a thrilling ride on the back of sheep! Participation is limited to children above the age of 5 and weighing less than 55 pounds.

The Buccaneer Commission's mission is to provide South Texas with fantastic entertainment, as well as support the educational opportunities of area students. Each year, numerous scholarships are granted by this non-profit organization.
