‘Pirates’ coming to city Saturday

Published 11:39 am Thursday, June 23, 2011

A group of six pirates from New Orleans will be in Vicksburg Saturday to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and promote New Orleans tourism.

The Pirate Krewe, which tours across the country making appearances, will be at Martin’s at Midtown from 6 until 8 p.m. Saturday with live music performed by Guitar Charlie.

There is no cover charge for the event, though donations to take pictures with the pirates will be accepted and donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, benefiting children with life-threatening medical conditions.
