Misery Scarlet (Shannon Clement) holds a sword to the neck of the Crimson Chin (Chris Fields) during the 5th annual John Levique Pirate Days last weekend at John's Pass Village in Madeira Beach. Below, Ignatius Pendragon (Wyl Carter Jr.) yells to drum up spectators for the Pirate Circle, a 50-foot rope circle in which pirates settled their differences by fighting until one gave up. Pirate Days celebrates the discovery of John's Pass.
