10:00 a.m. – Pirate Bazaar Opens at Schooner Landing
The event opens at the Pirate Bazaar located at Schooner Landing, where there will be games, activities and pirate history displays. The authentically costumed Pirates of the Dark Rose re-enactors will be on hand at their Tortuga Village to interact with the event-goers. Volunteers from the Second Congregational Church in Newcastle will be on hand with a table that includes children’s activities and a crew of sea shanty singers, volunteers from Blessings in a Backpack in Jefferson will have a table loaded with piratical crafts that children can enjoy and volunteers from the Twin Villages Church will host a table with children’s games.
