International Talk Like a Pirate Day

When: Wed., Sept. 19 2018

Way back in 1995, John Bauer and Mark Summers proclaimed Sept. 19 should forever be known as a day when we should all talk like pirates. The Greater Cleveland Aquarium has embraced the resulting International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD) and makes it a point to celebrate the date each year. Today, if you come dressed as a pirate or read a randomly selected phrase while doing your best pirate impression, you'll receive $5 off your admission. The first 75 guests who attempt to utter an ITLAPD phrase at the ticket counter will receive an eye patch. In addition to the regularly scheduled Sharks & Scuba talks and a stingray feed, International Talk Like A Pirate Day activities include the opportunity to craft your own pirate accessories, enjoy appearances by friendly land shark Finn, and a chance to win prizes or a year-long family pass by embarking on a scavenger hunt for "hidden treasure" in the exhibits. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check the website for ticket prices. (Niesel)
