Come and celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day and learn all about life on a pirate ship in the 18th century, what did they eat, how did they prepare it – a whole day of pirating fun! From 10:30 – Noon, you can watch the film “Cutthroat Island” (PG-13) about a female pirate who races to find a hidden treasure island. Between 1pm & 3pm, local historian Tamara Eastman will talk about women pirates, how many joined pirate ships and which of those took over the ships. The “Pirate Lady” has come out of retirement.
