Our family had made it a tradition to venture over to Fells Point for Privateer Day every spring! We even bought our daugter a tri corner hat on a vacation last last summer thinking she could wear it for this event. It's a day for people watching, great costumes, ice cream, maybe some shopping, but it's always fun!
April 10th, Saturday’s Privateer Day runs from 11am to 6pm and features tall ships, live music, unique vendors, children’s activities, a beer garden and much more. Other highlights include a Living History Camp at Bond Street Wharf Park where the privateers and pirate reinactors fire live cannons and preform mock sword battles! You'll see live parrots and a sea battle with the Pride of Baltimore II.
The evening kicks off at 6:00pm with a Pirate Invasion at over 15 local pubs, featuring Pirates Choice and other drink specials. Tickets are $3/5 and come complete with a button and invasion map filled with specials. Come plunder the point ‘till midnight with several hundred of your closest pirate friends.
