(February 8, 2017, Commerce, Texas) Shiver me timbers! The pirates are coming to the Children’s Museum on Saturday, February 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Now that the Daddy-Daughter dance is history for this year, it is time to turn attention to the Mother-Son Pirate Night, a time for mothers and sons. Moms and young boys will have the opportunity to look like pirates and the “mates” will receive pirate training during the evening. Learning to walk with “sea” legs, escape a sinking pirate ship, and attack a sea monster will be part of the evening. Detective skills will be used as the Museum Pirates search for Blackbeard’s treasure.
“It is important to the Children’s Museum that we recognize the special relationship between moms and their sons, “said Donna Tavener, Board President.
“We have a great group of volunteers working on this event,” Sharline Freeman, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum, stated. “Kathy Erwin, a former caterer, is coordinating the pirate food with help from Brenda Estess. Lonnie Plunkett will assist with the decorations. And the balloon lady will be back again.”
The pirate food will include Pirate’s Trash, Peg Legs, and Cannon Balls. Face painting and balloon entertainment will also be part of the evening. And, of course, the Children’s Museum will be open for play in the many play areas.
“When I was creating the event poster, I wanted to capture the excitement for this event. It is a special time for moms and sons, “said Elana Barton, Director of Development.
Tickets for the evening are $30 per couple. Purchase them by calling the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum at 903-886-6055.
