Avast, ye mateys! It’s time to work on your pirate lingo and be prepared for the invasion of Steveston’s Gulf of Georgia Cannery Museum on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Sept. 15 and 16.
Mimi Horita, marketing and visitor services manager for the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society assures that the pirates are the fun-loving, friendly kind.
With a pirate encampment by theShady Isle Piratesinside the museum, there promises to be lots of swashbuckling fun for families of all ages.
So, whether you wear you own pirate gear, go incognito or borrow the pirates’ garb the games and fun are free to all under 18 who come with an adult.
As the official observance of Talk Like a Pirate Day, the cannery museum offers fun for pirates both big and very small.
Whether you can make it to the pirate invasion or not, this Parks Canada site makes for a fun outing. The costs for this family fun are down again this year.
“Kids are free at Parks Canada sites starting this year, so it should be a fun time for families,” says Horita.
