I can’t think of a better way to spend a warm Friday night in the summer and I can’t think of a better way to see Pirates of the Caribbean, the Curse of the Black Pearl, than to actually be on board a ship! A ship that has been on the water since 1797!
It’s all part of Summer Movie Nights aboard “Old Ironsides”, also known as the USS Constitution.
Yes, that USS Constitution!
The ship that went to war for American independence. The ship that once sailed into the Mediterranean to stop actual pirates who were causing trouble for American trade ships. The ship that is undefeated for 225 years. The USS Constitution that will make her way to Boston Harbor on Monday, July 4th for a 21 gun salute towards Fort Independence on Castle Island.
So grab your beach chair and a blanket, pack some snacks (no alcohol) and enjoy the scent of the sea air while gently rocking on the oldest commissioned warship still on the water.
(Who knows, maybe you’ll have a Pirates of the Caribbean Jack Sparrow sighting.)
