This month we celebrated Baltimore City's newest adventure, complete with pirate swords, bagpipes, and a blast from the USS Constellation's cannon.
Twelve solar powered pirate ships are officially open for business at the Inner Harbor. The fleet, owned and managed by the Living Classrooms Foundation, will employ and inspire 50 young people with job training and hands-on education. Baltimore's own Premier Rides helped design the ships, which can hold up to six pirates at one time.
Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill was on deck with Historic Ships in Baltimore Captain Chris Rowsom, Living Classrooms President James Bond, and Baltimore City Mayor Catherine Pugh to set sail the Inner Harbor's first new tourist attraction in five years.
