Pirates Set to Invade Port Adelaide, Again!
The Pirates of Port Adelaide Festival, proudly sponsored by Flinders Port Holdings, will transform the iconic Hart’s Mill into a Pirate Hub hosting sea-faring entertainment for all ages in celebration of International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
The 2-day Pirate Festival is a free family event.
Port Adelaide is the perfect place for pirates to gather as it has the 2 Tall Ships, The One and All and the Historic Ketch Falie, and a ghost ship, The City of Adelaide, all berthed in the inner harbour of the Port River plus a world-class Maritime Museum.
Catch the colour on the streets as the popular (and free) Kids Treasure Hunt leads families of pirates around Port Adelaide in search of clues and booty. Local traders get into the spirit, too, hosting pop-up pirate activities like face painting, goodie bags and, for the daring pirate, seafaring tattoos!
On the river adjacent to the Pirate Hub, the new and unique Pirate Charity Games will see teams competing on a water/land obstacle course involving: walk the plank; greasy pole; run for the treasure; swim for the booty; and tug o’ war. Participating teams will raise money for their favourite charity, sporting club and other causes.
By evening, the many bars, restaurants and pubs in Port Adelaide will offer unique pirate food, drink and music experiences for the adult pirates.
