Mystic Seaport hosts Pirate Days

Published May 01. 2014 4:00AM
Get a peek at pirates at Mystic Seaport.

Grab an eye patch, a puffy shirt and a parrot and head on over to Mystic Seaport for Pirate Days this weekend.

Because, this year, visitors can get costumed up and take part in a pirate parade.

There's plenty of other pirate-centric entertainment, too, including a mock trial and a sing-along. Folks can pore over treasure-map clues that will lead to hidden buccaneers and treasure chests. They can indulge in games in the Playscape area - walk the plank, for instance, or pin the patch on a pirate.

Oh, and don't forget to rehearse your aaarrrggghhh-iest pirate phrases. Yo ho ho!
