Freeboot Friday Gets Pirates Fans Pumped Up For Home Opener

Pirate fans were getting geared up Friday night for Saturday's season opener against NCCU at the first Freeboot Friday event of the year in Uptown Greenville.

The event took place from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m. At Five Points Plaza.

There was live music, crafts, inflatables for the kids and food and beverages.

The Jolly Trolley took people on free rides around the uptown district.

Freebooters also had a visit from the Marching Pirates and the ECU cheerleaders.

Freeboot Friday takes place every Friday before a Pirates home game.

WITN is proud to be the media sponsor for the event.
