It’s a wonderful time of the season:  nice weather, lots of eager new visitors coming to town, and a park filled with adventure and Pyrates. Events in the park and out at the dock all weekend make this festival a family favorite. Everyone loves to be a pirate, arggh! And most amazingly, the Brig Niagara will come into port on Friday and set up for deck tours Saturday and Sunday.
