Pirates have boarded ship and taken over at the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives.

Join Kiki the Pirate for an afternoon packed with pirate and fairy themed merriment Feb. 10 from 2-4 p.m. Dancing, pirate chanteys, a treasure hunt and even a little magic are on deck. Come dressed in a pirate or fairy costume for the chance to win a prize and enjoy swashbuckling fun for the whole family.

“We are thrilled to have Kiki lead our Winter Carnival event for the third year in a row. Kiki brings such enthusiasm and leads a dynamic, interactive afternoon that will leave everyone wanting more,” said Denise Marsh, marketing and communications coordinator for the museum.
