I blogged about this back in February.
If you’re a fan of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” you won’t want to miss this.
‘Providence’ which is one of the ships from the movies will be docking in Arlington at the end of King Street from Tall Ship Providence Foundation. The ship was restored in Maine. The ship will be in Old Town Alexandria on Monday, July 1st…just in time for the 4th of July weekend.
The ‘Providence’ is a full-scale replica of one of the U.S. Continental Navy’s first warships, which was captained by John Paul Jones, the father of the U.S. Navy, under the leadership of General George Washington. What can we look forward to? There will be public tours, chartered cruises, educational programs and beer cruises presented in partnership with Alexandria’s own Port City Brewing Company.
*Note: After Monday the ship will be docked there permanently.
