Each year, a colorful crew of scalawags takes over the town during Pirate Day in the Bay. This year, the event took place May 18 & 19. But forget the pillaging - the party boosted the local economy and raised money for charity.

This community garden on Court Street is built on the slab of Ruth's Cakery - an iconic community business owned by Ruth and Jim Thompson pre-Katrina. In April, Ruth's Roots (now a non-profit geared to working with local youths) sponsored a contest for local artists to paint murals on the slab. During the Second Saturday Artwalk on May 12, the winners of the contest were chosen. - photos by Brenda Comer and courtesy of Baron Necaise for Ruth's Roots
