We had a good time at the Pirate Festival. Hard to believe this was the first one. Of course we dressed them up and headed down town. Lots of activities for the kids to do. They got to paint a pirate and make a sword out of newspaper. They also met many pirates. Black beard and Mary Reed. The kids sat and listened to the pirates tell stories of their lives and were able to ask questions. They got to participate in a battle and walk in a pirate parade and pretend to shoot a gun.
They also got to go on the coast guard boat who was a sponsor at the festival Daniel like she big gun.
