20th Annual Pirate’s Day

June 5 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The DMBA is thrilled to once again host Milford’s favorite swashbuckling tradition: Pirate’s Day! 

Dress like a pirate, rock out with Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate, and (of course!) watch Captain Kidd & his mutinous crew invade Milford Harbor!  

Grab yer spyglass and visit Lisman Landing between 9-1pm to dance and sing with Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate! And don’t miss the stars of the show! Watch Captain Kidd & his scurvy crew arriving in Milford Harbor right here at noonish! 

Then we head to the Milford Green to search for pirate booty on a kids’ treasure hunt through town and enjoy arts & crafts, unique vendors, and live music throughout the day!

Don’t forget to dress like a pirate if you are so inclined!

Here’s what’s on tap! 

PANCAKES WITH THE PIRATES – LISMAN LANDING – 9, 10 and 11am Seatings

Character Breakfast with the Pirates! Get your photo taken, enjoy balloon animals, have your face painted, and enjoy breakfast on the water with Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate.
