The 12th Street Basin at the Everett Marina will be teeming with live music, children’s activities and pirates during a three-day celebration from Aug. 10 to 12.

Boaters and landlubbers alike are invited to the “cruiser party” that includes food, like pizza, shaved ice and ice cream, American Indian drumming and dinghy races.

Free hot dogs will be served from 2 to 6 p.m. Friday at West Marine to those wearing a wristband.

David Calhoun will play from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday and from 2 to 5 p.m. Aug. 11. Tony and the Tigers will play from 7 to 10 p.m. Aug. 11.

A drum ceremony will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday.

An inflatable pirate playhouse will be on site from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 11 and the pirates arrive at 1 p.m. Raffles will go on throughout the day.

Visitors can take a shuttle to the Tulalip Casino, the Seattle Outlets and Cabela’s, and the free ferry to Jetty Island is nearby.

A special breakfast will be held Aug. 12 at the Milltown Sailing Association at the North Marina. Tickets for the breakfast are $5, or $20 for a family of five.

Sponsors are Brethren of the Sound and the Port of Everett. For more information, call Carrie Tibbetts at 425-760-4946.
