Pirate attire is highly encouraged with lots of fun activities and prizes for the best dressed pirates.  All ages can enjoy games, a treasure hunt, auction items, snacks, and more!

The fun starts at 2 pm - 5 pm at the VFW Post 1114 on 110 North Wabash Avenue, Evansville. Tickets are $15 for children, adults are free.  You can purchase tickets at the event or at eventbrite.com.  For tickets, click HERE.  

All proceeds benefit the Stop Light City Playround which is planned to be built on a 2- acre park located off the Lloyd Expressway on the corner of 11th Avenue and Indiana Street, just a short walk from the Fall Festival.

Ann Prather, one of the volunteers for the playground tells us:

The money raised this year will go toward the purchase of new piece called the Cozy Dome, a fun structure that offers a spot for kids to climb under and take a break to socialize or play independently.

The playground's first piece of equipment, a fire truck, was recently installed and is ready for play!

Stop Light City Playground's Motto:  "We wanna play!"

Reserve your spot to become a certified pirate at the Pirate Party!  Walk the plank, get a pirate name, play games, crafts, and enjoy lots of music and fun! Beverages will be available for purchase.
