Arrrgh, me hearties. Next weekend, would-be pirates of all ages are invited to the Tuckerton Seaport on Saturday, June 8th for their Third Annual Privateers and Pirates Festival. The Seaport 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.
This is your chance to set sail for a fun-filled day for the entire family. The Seaport staff has been a plottin’ and a schemin’ for months to come up with a line-up even a landlubber would enjoy. The day’s activities begin at 10am with a Pirate Meet and Greet. 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. Winners will be announced at the end of the day on the Facebook page and prizes will be given for the best pirate costume.
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. Channel your inner pirate at the Pirate’s Market, where you can purchase eye patches, swords, and other pirate paraphernalia. New this year, adults will enjoy the Pirate’s Grog Garden serving up New Jersey craft beers. If it’s treasured memories you seek, spend the day at the Seaport and live the pirate’s life of plunder.
