|Cortez, Fla. (August 12, 2013) – In November, the Florida Maritime Museum (FMM) will be hosting its inaugural “Boatyard Bash” event. It promises to be a fun, family friendly day. In order to make it a huge success, FMM is looking for quality art/craft vendors, musicians, volunteers and sponsors.
In addition to live music and a variety of family friendly activities and fun, educational booths, guests can watch a standup paddleboard build in progress, and stroll through the diverse selection of boats that will be on display.
After dark, the museum will be presenting the 1926 silent film The Black Pirate, with live music by featured performers. This film follows the story of a young man who, seeking revenge, joins the band of pirates responsible for his father’s death. Guest are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs to sit on during the screening.
Admission to this event is free, but donations are always appreciated. Popcorn will be provided during the film screening, courtesy of the museum, but other food from local vendors will be available for purchase throughout the day.
