Toshiba Tall Ships 'Pirate' Festival in Dana Point this September 5-7th 2014

What a beautiful way to finish the Summer and get a feeling of fall: the Ocean Institute celebrates its 30th year as host of the Toshiba Tall Ships Festival. This is a beautiful event for those boat lovers and kids, as everyone gets to see and explore real working tall ships, also known as the Pirate Festival - as all weekend long people celebrate by dressing up as pirates too.

There's plenty of activities planned, including:

  • Interactive living-history encampments  and demonstrations
  • Knot tying races
  • Great returning and new musical and dance acts for all ages
  • Ship tours
  • Friendly 'Pirate School': walk and sing like a pirate!
  • Art and the Sea workshop series

Many vendors and food and drinks will be for sale.

When: September 5th - 7th, 2013 (Tall ships parade at sunset September 5th)

Where: Ocean Insititute in Dana Point and Baby Beach.

Remember the Ocean Institute's Parking Lot will be closed because of the event. There's a nearby parking lot, but also free parking and shuttle service will be available at: Salt Creek Beach Park at Pacific Coast Highway and Selva Road.
