Pirates Ahoy!

PIRATES AHOY! 2020 GOES VIRTUAL

Due to COVID-19, Pirates Ahoy! looked a bit differently this year! Rather than on land, events took place on the ship deck! Such events included: many crafts to do at home, read alouds and pirate jokes and riddles. We hope you hearty pirates had as much fun as we did and we cannot wait to see you (hopefully) digging for gold with us next year in person!

This year's featured book was Ned the Knitting Pirate by Diana Murray

PIRATES AHOY! 2019

The Children’s Literature Centre collaborated with FrostburgFirst and the city for its annual Pirates Ahoy! event on the 10th of July. 2019 was the 14th year of the event! Very excited children (and parents) picked fierce pirate names, received goodie bags and participated in a whole load of activities during the day. There were lots of excellent pirate-themed photo opportunities as well!

Popular activities included the balloon swab, treasure hunt, walking the plank and pirate arts and craft. In the Palace Theatre, the illustrator of “Pirate Boy”, Julie Fortenberry gave a presentation to the crowd gathered. 

A new event this year was the STEM Gauntlet where young pirates engaged in Jewel Pool, Token Boat and Ozo Map activities. Through this, the pirates were able to explore scientific concepts in a hands-on manner and be exposed to the basics of coding.

Thank you to everyone who supported Pirates Ahoy! in 2019.
