NEW BERN, N.C. (WITN) - We are less than a week until MumFest kicks off and with the new year, organizers are finding ways to entertain and educate those who visit.
One of the newer attractions will be a pirate invasion. It will be at Union Point Park all day Saturday and Sunday. Organizers say the goal is to give people an idea of what pirating was like.
"One of the things that is new this year is that we have a pirate invasion coming in, so that will be over at Union Point Park so we'll have probably about 60-70 pirates at Union Point Park that will be there to menace everyone who's going to be walking by and give you a little bit of an idea of what pirating was like," said Lynne Harakal, the executive director for Swiss Bear.
MumFest is happening October 11-13 in New Bern.
WITN is a proud sponsor of MumFest.
