Wed 9/19 @ 10AM-4PM
Books, documentaries and alarming news reports bombard us constantly about terrorism, global warming, mental instability in the White House, Russian spies, election fraud. But they are all sorely lacking in one thing, we can all agree. PIRATES! Because everything gets better with pirates.
Just ask the folks behind the “viral” September 19 observance, International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD). Maybe some day Cleveland school kids will even get out of class to Talk Like a Pirate. In which case, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium in the Flats is all prepared. Visit on ITLAPD doing piratical cosplay, or just read out a prepared phrase in a pirate accent, and that means $5 off price of admission (the first 75 participants also get a free eyepatch).
In addition there will a scavenger-treasure hunts, tie-in contests, pirate crafts and an appearance by aquarium mascot Finn the shark.
Although the final Talk Like a Pirate admission is taken at 4pm, know that the Greater Cleveland Aquarium remains open until 5pm.
