Every year since 2016 the Erie Maritime Museum invites kids of all ages to dress up in their Halloween costumes and head down for this frightfully fun event. The event features Halloween-themed activities and pizza! Guests also enjoy a tour on the U.S. Brig Niagara. Organizers of the event say it is a great way to spark interest in the area’s tall ship culture for adults and children alike. Marcus Masternak, who manages memberships for the Flagship Niagara League, says recognizing the history that put Erie on the map is important.
Next Saturday, October 27th, the Maritime Museum will host the “Boos on the Brig” event to raise funds for the Flagship Niagara League. For ticket information for this event, go to www.flagshipniagara.org.
