In Hampton more than a hundred pirates are invading the downtown area.

It's for the Blackbeard Pirate Festival.

This weekend folks are traveling back in time - to check out the action.

The annual event celebrates Hampton's maritime heritage by commemorating the demise of its most infamous visitor - Captain Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard the Pirate.

This is the 14th year for the event.
