Party Like a Pirate | A Whiting, IN Community Event

April 20 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Aye Matey! ⚓️ Land ho! 🏝 It’s Party Like a Pirate Day! Visit downtown Whiting for family friendly fun during the day from 11am-2pm with the Riddle Me Timbers Pirate Crawl though downtown shops and eateries. 🏴‍☠️ Complete the scavenger hunt and win a free children’s ticket (or 1/2 priced adult ticket) to the Mascot Hall of Fame!

A part of the Museum will be transformed into Pirate Island, where little pirates can search for buried treasure, walk the plank, make a pirate flag and more!

Spend the day visiting Whiting businesses, play games, and have fun at the Mascot Hall of Fame!

Dressing like a pirate is strongly encouraged.

Here’s how it works:

Begin the day by picking up your scavenger hunt at Mind Benders Puzzles and Games. They are located at 1442 119th Street in Whiting – just a couple blocks from the museum!

Follow the clues through the Downtown Whiting business district and visit local shops.

When your hunt is complete, return to Mind Benders, and trade in your scavenger hunt for tickets to the Mascot Hall of Fame! Children under 12 will receive a ticket for free admission, and adults will receive a coupon for 1/2 price tickets!

Remember, if you don’t complete the scavenger hunt, tickets for the museum will be full price – so come out, have fun, and see some of the amazing Whiting businesses!
