Pirate Fest weekend

Hi we will be renting a house on Tybee for my parents' 50th anniversary. The weekend that my Mom wants to go is during the Pirate Festival. Are there huge crowds during that weekend or is it just a celebration among local people? Is it a big, loud drunken party?(I'm not judging-just trying to plan the best for my parents). My parents have been to Tybee once but I have not. I'm just concerned mainly with how hard it will be to drive around the island. My Dad has MS and can't walk far so they will be depending on a car to get around.

Thanks so much for your help!

The crowds are fairly family friendly but the driving is an issue. Some roads around the pier are shut down for the weekend and there is a parade which shuts down the main drag for several hours.

It is a fun festival and there is lots to see if your dad has a chair or scooter, they would probably enjoy it.

Great! Thanks for the info Brian! I just shared the info with my Mom and I think she wants to book the next week instead. Our plan is to drop my Dad off near the destinations we will be visiting since he is too stubborn to use a wheelchair or scooter lol.
