Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Yaar! Avast ye mateys, we had a maaar-velous weekend with the Shady Isle Pirates on September 15 & 16, and thank them from the bottom of our treasure chests for the wonderful pirate-y fun that they brought to the Cannery for all to enjoy. Last weekend, the Jolly Roger flag flew high above the Cannery to signal to all that the pirates were in town for an early celebration of the annual International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th).

Thanks to the very generous contribution by Richmond’s own Shady Isle Pirates, the Cannery was decked out with everything from a pirate encampment, treasure chest of pirate dress-up clothes and accessories, a gallery of games, storytime, magic show, and even a mini-brig!  Here are just a few of the photos from the weekend, courtesy of volunteer photographer J.Wei.
