Mystic Pirate Invasion
September 30, 2016 - October 2, 2016
Enjoy pirate-themed fun for the whole family during the 4th annual Mystic Pirate Invasion! The Pirate Invasion begins on Friday, September 30th with an outdoor showing of Hook in the Mystic River Park at 6:30PM. On Saturday, October 1, enjoy pirate-themed food and drink specials at participating downtown restaurants, and be sure to keep an eye out for the pirates roaming the streets.
On Sunday the fun begins at 11:00AM, and at 12:00PM, the pirates will invade Downtown Mystic from aboard the schooner Argia. The pirates will have to engage the local militia in an epic sea battle to fight their way ashore!
X marks the spot! Children can pick up treasure maps in the Mystic River Park and follow the map through Downtown Mystic to collect treasures from participating shops on Sunday afternoon.
