Old City Seaport Festival Preview

Join us in the MetroKids Pirate's Lair at the Independence Seaport Museum this weekend.




The MK crew will man the MetroKids Pirate’s Lair during the 2nd Annual Old City Seaport Festival at the Independence Seaport Museum. Find us from 10am-5pm Sat. and Sun. on the museum’s second floor, where your young buccaneers can swashbuckle in style, try on a peg leg and make their own hooks and eye patches. Elsewhere, board the WWII sub Becuna, scope out the engine room of the steel warship Olympia, saunter the deck of a tall ship or two, witness a pirate battle, enter a rowboat race, marvel at wooden and model ships, cheer on the Parade of Boats, imbibe a beverage in the Beer Garden and tuck into some anything-but-scurvy Philly food truck eats. Here's exactly what you can expect at our lair.
