SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Young pirates have gathered at the San Diego Maritime Museum this weekend for a very special party.
For the past two days, the Star of India has hosted "Pirate Days on the Embarcadero."
The fun-filled event lets kids dress up as pirates and watch all sorts of cool things -- such sword fighting demonstrations and much more.
"Kids love it. They came back every year. It's interesting. We've had a lot of repeat customers. They come back every year. So they get their goodie bag when they get here and they run around and do the scavenger hunt. They gather pirate treasure and golds and jewels and all kinds of stuff and then they do crafts. They play the games and just have a ball," Robyn Gallant of the San Diego Maritime Museum said.
San Diego Maritime Museum officials say hundreds of children took part in this weekend's Pirate Days events.
