It’s going to be a bouncy, messy, musical, fun weekend for teens and children during Privateer Days.


This year’s Privateer Days will have more bouncy activities and tents than ever before, including some for adults as well.  One new feature the Privateer Days Commission is excited about is the addition of “human hamster balls” to the activities in Privateer Park. 

A bracelet will be available for purchase for unlimited use of all of the bouncy activities in the park.

The Lions’ Club train, which was a hit last year, will be back as well. Tickets are a dollar per ride on the train.

 “Art in the Park” with artist Kristen Lewis will be offered in the Queens County Crime Prevention tent.  The tent will house the children’s and teen activities for the weekend.

“Kristen is going to be doing some crafts with the kids, paper mache, clay pottery and oil painting,” says Brian Fralic, organizer with Privateer Days.

Teen activities have also returned and once again the planning and organizing of those activities was put in the hands of the teens themselves.

“This is the second year for the youth tent.  We go to the schools and basically what we do is offer them the tent and they come up with the schedule and what they want to do,” says Fralic.

Lori Anthony, one of the youth organizers of the teen tent says one of the highlights is the music.  This year, The Tangos, a local youth band are playing as well as Natalie Lynn, who performed at last year’s Privateer Days as well.

A lot of games with prizes will also be played including a photo scavenger hunt.

“We’re going to make up a list of a couple things in the main area of Liverpool and basically the goal is to find them, take funny pictures with them, and submit them before 8 p.m.,” says Anthony.

Other games include a shaving cream Twister, which gives the game a messier element, “Minute to Win it” contests where teens compete in minute long games for prizes, and a pie eating contest.
