Fort Knox Pirate Day

Posted August 22, 2015

Yo Ho Ho, we had some fun at the Fort Knox Pirate Day! The weather may have been a wee bit moist, but it didn’t stop the crowd of buccaneers from taking over the fort and having a mighty good time.

It was a joyous day filled with sea shanties, sword fights, cannon fire, and ship attacks. The Pirates of the Dark Rose were there to teach any landlubber what they needed to know about being a pirate. There were even pirate puppet shows for the wee lads and lasses.

The Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause Ship was there flying it’s Jolly Roger, handing out ice cream, and collecting gold doubloons for the Friends of Fort Knox. Ambassador Hillary and I even let our swashbuckling side show by dressing up for the event.

At the end of the day, we turned in a mighty good booty to the Friends of Fort Knox before we battened down the hatches and set sail.
