What You'll Get
Children seem to race past each of life's milestones, tying their shoes one day, riding a two-wheeler the next, and commandeering a fleet of stolen two-wheelers on the third. Let young pirates loose with like-minded shiphands with today's Groupon: for $2, you get one admission to Golisano Children's Museum of Naples' “Pirates in the Park” at Cambier Park on Saturday, April 30, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. (a $5 value)
“Pirates in the Park” is an afternoon romp with a high-seas dress code and activity cartel for all ages. The event-wide costume contests award prizes for the most authentically sea-ravaged ensembles, and a treasure hunt rewards tykes for their sandy sleuthing. Tot-sized swabbies can craft nautical-themed crafts as well as walk a childproofed plank, readying them for the literal plank-walkings popular in high-school cafeterias. Face paintings, performances, dancing, and midair bounce-house rendezvous round out the event's attractions.
Proceeds from Pirates in the Park benefit Golisano Children's Museum of Naples. Currently under construction, the museum will be a 30,000-square-foot mind-whittling behemoth with state-of-the-art exhibits, teaching children by promoting hands-on discovery and enlightening young minds with the wonders of natural history, the evolution of human communities, and the physics of Einstein's bouffant.
