Maritime Race Weekend welcomes the next generation of pirates

pintsizepiratesTis not only the big mates who will shift their ballast on Maritime Race Weekend. The wee ones will shake their shanks as well.

After the blessed finish line closes and yer last shakey matey has crossed and mercifully gone to the grog house, yer little folk will gather at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

For the closing ceremonies of Maritime Race Weekend, small fry are invited to dress like pirates and walk, skip or hop while parents and spectators cheer them on.

For the wee ones, loot awaits: A massive pirate medal and an honorary pirate certificate – so don’t be surprised if they start looting and pillaging shortly after.

The parade is free, but children must be pre-registered.

The parade is a walk, skip or hop – no running with swords please!

Need I add anything else? Oh yes: Aaaaaarrrrrr!
