Kick off the day and enjoy highly-acclaimed professional storyteller Katie Adams perform a collection of the best pirate tales, including some Florida pirates of our very own! Kids can enjoy fun make-and-take crafts and get creative and competitive in our miniature DIY boat races.

We hope to see you there!
