Avast, me maties. X marks the spot at the Western Carteret Library for Family Pirate Day scheduled from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Pirate Friends of the Library and Capt. Christine Brin of the NC Maritime Museum will hoist the colors for pirate fun and adventure.
Create a pirate hat, get pirate tattoos, make merry with a Beaufort pirate, join in a costume contest, get a pirate photo taken, go on a scavenger hunt, listen to pirate stories, learn about the infamous Blackbeard, and collect pirate booty.
“The Friends of Western Carteret Public Library are happy to provide another Family Pirate Day for the communities served by our library. Last year, over 100 children and their families came to the library to be pirates for a day. We look forward to having more families attend this year,” said Karen Naftzger, program chair for the Friends.
Thar’ll be no walking of the plank at Family Pirate Day, so join in for some pirate fun.” No registration is needed and the events are free.
