Tall Ships Arriving in Three Weeks for Festival



May 20, 2014

Haul a yard arm!  Hear the cannon roar!  Dress up like a pirate, and meet some real ones, too!  Tall Ships At Cape Charles Festival is welcoming three historic tall ships, the Kalmar Nyckel, Privateer Lynx, and Schooner Serenity, to Cape Charles Town Harbor June 14-15.

The third annual waterfront tall ships extravaganza features all kinds of family fun, deck tours, day, sunset and pirate sails, live music, great food, helicopter rides and arts and crafts vendors.

This is small town, family-friendly America the way it used to be. Cape Charles, our deep water harbor to hospitality, presents a rare opportunity to get up close and personal as you explore the decks and meet the crews of magnificent tall ships and encounter roving pirates, a troupe of costumed re-enactors, and all kinds of family fun throughout the historic town and harbor.

Kids and parents will love the Captain Mayhem Pirate Adventure Sails offered three times daily on Saturday and Sunday aboard the Schooner Serenity, and all three tall ships have afternoon or evening sunset cruises both days. Reservations are recommended — visit www.tallshipscapecharles.com. [Read more…]
