Get your pirate gear together and get ready for some fun! This weekend at Tuckerton Seaport it is the Privateers & Pirates Festival!!! First this seaport is super close to my absolutely favorite place in the world, Long Beach Island and if you have never been to that part of New Jersey put that on your must do list because it is absolutely beautiful! I have never been to Tuckerton but seeing as it is only a few minutes from my favorite place I can only imagine that it is going to be awesome!
I am headed down and the kids, Tom and I are going to be roughing it (I have already heard a lot about how our cabin will not have a toilet and that has the kids in a tizzy however I am excited for the time out from regular life and all the electronics we normally have (with the exception of my cellphone so I can share the excitement of the Jersey shore and Tuckerton Seaport and a few times of me jumping online to share some deals of course).
Now let me tell you about the best part… YOU can be there too!!! But if you see me walking around looking like a hot mess blame it on the fact that I am roughing it in a cabin with out a bathroom and we will be using a communal bathroom 😉 The day’s activities begin at 11am with a Pirate Meet & Greet!!! This is event is totally budget friendly too!! Event admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for children, and free for Seaport Members and children under 5. Event admission includes access to the Seaport’s 40 acres of family fun, featuring maritime activities, historic and recreated buildings, live animals, a boardwalk, miniature golf course, and exhibits.
