Pirate Day at the Blackbeard Exhibit — Jan 27

SPENCER — In association with “Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge: 1718,” the North C arolina Transportation Museum will host Pirate Day on Saturday. Activities, offered at the regular admission rate, will include explorations of life aboard a pirate ship, underwater archaeology, and pirate punishments, as well as a costume contest for adults and children.

Meal ticket admission for Pirate Day is sold in advance, and all other tickets can be purchased on the day of the event or at www.nctrans.org

An expanded train ride schedule will be offered with rides at 10:30, 11:30 a.m., 1:30, and 2:30 p.m. Museum admission plus the on-site train ride is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/military, and $8 for children 3-12. Two and under ride free. Keep your eyes peeled before the train ride, though. There just might be pirates about.

Event upgrades include two opportunities to dine with friendly pirates.

Pancakes with Pirates will be offered at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m., with pancakes, sausage, and orange juice enjoyed aboard a stationary railroad dining car in the company of friendly, roaming pirates. The cost, in addition to museum admission, is $10 per person.

Pirate Sandwich Ships will be offered at 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m., featuring ship-shaped sandwiches, fish and chips (Goldfish crackers and chips), carrots and celery with ranch dressing, and grapes on a sword skewer. Juice or water will also be offered. The cost, in addition to museum admission, is $12 per person.

Pirate Day will include a costume contest for adults and children at noon with prizes available for the top costumes. The contest will be divided into age brackets for children (0-2, 3-5, 6-9, 10-12), with 13 years of age and older participating in the adult contest.
