Presented by Gosling's Rum, come down and let off a bit of winter steam. Grab your sword and hoist your sails to the Privateers' Bashat the Connecticut River Museum. Come in costume (or not!) and relive riverfront history at the thirteenth annual Privateer Bash. A playful nod to the privateers who made their wealth by plundering foreign ships of their valuable cargo. Grog, grub, music, and dancing will fill the floors of our exhibit galleries from 6:30-10 p.m. Brad and Brianwill help create the tropical mood with the sound of the Islands. Savory bites will be provided in-part by Gourmet Galley, Coffee's Country Market, Catering by Selene, Da Vinci Pizza and David Allen Catering.
