WEEKEND PICK: Salem Pirate Faire - Sept. 15-16

If swashbuckling adventure on the high seas, romance, treachery, and treasure sound like your idea of a good time, then the Salem Pirate Faire is for you! Winter Island Park is the perfect setting for this day of family-friendly entertainment, a seaside location that helps the cast of Pastimes recreate the exciting and terrifying days when pirates ruled the seas! The event takes place Saturday, Sept 15 and Sunday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Salem Pirate Faire features an ongoing storyline each day, and plenty of opportunities for patrons to meet some of the most famed and feared pirate captains in history! The faire also features music, unique variety acts, vendors dealing in clothes, jewelry, gifts, and accessories, and abundant grub and grog (that's food and drink for you landlubbers). Get your sea legs ready, put on your best eye patch, and join us for a day of thrills!

Admission is $10 adults, $8 for students, seniors and those with military ID, and $5 for children ages 4-12. Premium Parking at Winter Island is $5 a carload. There is a free parking at Salem Willows Park, a seaside park within walking distance to Winter Island.
