Port Washington Pirate Festival
Today @ Port Washington, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Perhaps your only chance to cruise a 150-foot, four-masted schooner whilst it’s under siege by pirates (or whilst it’s not, depending on which cruise you sign up for), the Port Pirate Festival runs this weekend through Sunday at 139 W. Grand Ave. in Port Washington. Admission is free (though there are fees for some activities), and in addition to cruises there will be a buccaneer bash, historical displays—including a pirate encampment—and a pirate-themed parade. Don’t own an eye-patch? You can find one, along with other items, at the thieves’ marketplace. This year the festival features appearances from three actors from Pirates of the Caribbean: Treva Etienne, Vince Lozano and Isaac Singleton.
