Event is Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Adam Thoroughgood House

Monday, August 04, 2014

Pirates and colonists – oh my! One rarely thinks of this combination at Virginia Beach’s Adam Thoroughgood House, but on Saturday, Aug. 16, the daylong Life of a Pirate program will feature this exciting element of colonial life.  

Are you a seadog or a landlubber? Will you hoist the colours or swab the deck?  Discover if you have what it takes to be part of Virginia Beach’s own Moody Crewe with pirate school at noon and 2 p.m. Learn about the weapons pirates used with demonstrations at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. Throughout the day, guests can help the crew create rope and play popular tavern games. House tours will take place on the half-hour every hour and are included in the $5 price of admission for Life of a Pirate.
