The Buc Days Pirate Queens have once again taken over the city.

And they’re planning to mark the occasion by tossing Mayor Joe McComb into the bay in a few minutes down at the T-heads.

It’s a tradition that dates all the way back to 1938 when the first Buc Days celebration was held.

A.C. McCaughan was mayor of Corpus Christi that year.

A bayfront part was named after him.

And today, it’s called Waters Edge Park.
