The uneasy crew at Discovery Harbour is sending out a word of warning throughout southern Georgian Bay that a band of renegade seadog pirates will arrive at their beloved establishment on Saturday July 30th.
This fearsome event, aptly named Pirates of the Bay, will encompass the entire site with a crew in full pirate costume. The site will boldly display the skull and crossbones and the Tall Ships will be manned for a pirate skirmish.
Visitors of all ages brave enough to take part will be expected to unleash their inner pirate as they become buccaneers for the day complete with a new, colourful pirate name. Commanded by the infamous Cap’n Corbin and with all hands on deck, activities will include a pirate school where landlubbers will learn pirate lingo and thrill to freebooter magic shows, crafts and even a tattoo parlour.
Leading the charge at Discovery Harbour, Will Baird – General Manager and also known as William Black Beard – will be on the lookout from the crow’s nest as a pirate skirmish is expected between the HMS Badger and the Historic Military Establishments of Upper Canada.
