3 Party Like a Pirate at Fells Point's Privateer Festival

The British Navy called Baltimore a "Nest of Pirates," and the Fells Point neighborhood still likes to let its pirate flag fly. The three-day Privateer Festival has slides for kids, a grog tent for grownups, and a nautical pet costume contest for everyone. Throughout the year, set sail with Urban Pirates Family and Adult Cruises for a swashbuckling harbor adventure.
