Privateers & Pirates Fest – June 6, 2015
Next up, Pirates and Privateers will invade the Seaport on Saturday, June 6th for the 5th Annual Privateers & Pirates Fest. Would-be pirates of all ages are invited to the Seaport when it will be taken over by Captain Black and the Crew of the Valhalla who have been plundering the eastern shore of the American colonies for centuries. Enter Bloody Historical’s authentic privateer careening camp. Within this camp, you will find tents and tools, cook-fire, and historical displays of artifacts and skills. You’ll also meet the authentic sailors who crew this camp. Step back in time and experience the Golden Age of Piracy for yourself! This is your chance to set sail for a fun-filled day for the entire family. The Seaport staff has been plottin’ and schemin’ for months to come up with a line-up even a landlubber would enjoy. Get your hands on a treasure map as you enter to join in the fun of a treasure hunt. Wear your best pirate costume and you might win a prize. Pose for a photo on the plank. Live the life of a privateer or pirate and learn the difference between the two. Enjoy live entertainment throughout the day with Pirates for Sail and be immersed in an interactive pirate adventure for a swashbuckling good time. New this year, the PirateTimeNJ will take guests on a voyage on the high seas. If it’s treasured memories you seek, spend the day at the Seaport and live the pirate’s life of plunder.
