This Saturday, July 23rd, noon-6pm, we will hold a Pirate Picnic on Georges Island in Boston Harbor. We are co-hosting it with Boston Freedom of Information. We hope you will join us.
We will have picnic food, games, costume contests, as well as political discussions and trainings. However, we encourage you to bring your own water, food for yourself and/or to share with others, and of course, your favorite pirate gear.
We will be taking the noon ferry from the Boston Long Wharf-North landing and will be there until 6pm. If you arrive on a later or earlier ferry, we will be at the parade grounds to the left of the fort from the pier. Here is a pdf map of the island.
You can purchase ferry tickets on-line and either print them out at home or pick them up at the ticket booth. When filling out the form, choose the Boston to Georges Returning from Georges option and make sure to choose July 23rd as your travel date. You should be able to buy tickets at the ticket booth as well.
It will be a great afternoon of geek politics, activism, and fun. We hope you can make it!
