Free Family Fun

The Salem Maritime Festival is all about Ships, Sawdust, Sailors, and Song, but, being a mother, I like to headline the fact that it's free family fun!  And the fun is educational, and the education is fun, so it's a painless way to spend a beautiful Saturday - and Friday night - with your family on Derby Wharf.
It all starts tonight with a free concert by Coyote Run, an awesome Celtic Rock band, so bring a blanket, a picnic (or at least an ice cream cone) down to Derby Wharf to listen and dance. 6:30 - 9:00 PM. 
Here's what we have to look forward to on Saturday: 

  • Free Harbor Cruise Ticket Drawings: 9am(Central Wharf Ticket Booth)
  • Free Harbor Cruises: 10am - 1pm
  • Seaside Kite-flying: 10am - 4pm
  • NE Aquarium Tide Pool Exhibit: 11am - 2pm
  • Face Painting: 12noon - 3pm
  • Muck Walk, Life at Low Tide: 12noon, 2pm
  • Hayrides around Historic Salem: 1 - 4pm
  • The Rebel Shakespeare Company: 1pm, 3pm
  • The Weebluets, Scottish Dancers: 2pm
