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.
