I know today’s Talk Like a Pirate Day, but if you really want to get down with the Pirates, I suggest clearing your schedule on Saturday, October 15th, for on that day, the Pirates of the Canal will descend upon downtown Lemont for some swashbuckling good times all to raise money for charity!
The Pirates of the Canal are a group of lads and lasses that dedicated to the memory of their friend Rob Themmel, who started fundraising using the pirate theme a few years back. He passed away in 2019, so the Pirates of the Canal continue to raise money for local charities…dressed as pirates! I freakin’ love it.
Saturday, October 15th, is their annual Pirates Pub Crawl! To participate, you should dress in your pirate best as you make your waythrough downtown Lemont, stopping at all the best spots. Each spot will have a chest for you to donate to, and there will be live music and food trucks at various stops. There will also be a Treasure Chest full of booty for you to win in a 50/50 raffle!
Yes, it’s a 21+ event, so no youngins.
You can get all the info here on their Facebook event page.
