Captain’s 66th Birthday
Edmonds and points beyond

Fall City Days
Downtown Fall City – 10 a.m. on
We return to one of our favorite towns for their festival. How can you beat a town with one street (so we don’t get lost), a couple of classic bars – the Frontier, the Riverside – and who knows what other mischief?

Tour de Terrace

Several of the Pyrates will be participating in this daunting run of 1K to raise money for local charities, including the University Food Bank.

Downtown Concrete – 10 a.m.
