Pirate Day at Fort Knox 

Historic Fort Knox in Prospect was invaded by pirates Saturday…But it was all in fun…The Friends of Fort Knox sponsored their annual “Pirate Day” for folks young and old…Hundreds of folks turned out in costume, trying out their best pirate accents, to take part in the festivities, which included several contests…from best sounding pirate to best-dressed…There was also a pirate parade and two treasure hunts…The highlight of the day was the arrival of the professional Pirates of the Dark Rose, who sailed to Fort Knox aboard their authentic Pirate Ship, the “must Roos.”Organizers say besides being a lot of fun, the event also brought in some much-needed revenue to the Fort, which has been struggling this summer because of the bad weather and the economy.
