Inspired by Shirley Temple singing “At the Codfish Ball” in the 1930’s movie Captain January, Schooner Adventure invites everyone to this celebration of our shared community and the grand finale of the 2019 Schooner Sailing Season. This first annual Fall party honors the support of our members and hardworking volunteers. Codfish Ball Chairperson and Adventure Board member Jonathan Jaques says, “I’m excited about this event, which is intended to be a fun celebration of Adventure and her community in every sense of the word. It has the potential to become a yearly tradition drawing a festive crowd of supporters down to the Gloucester waterfront!”
With the Schooner Adventure on the pier as a backdrop, folks will enjoy a cash bar, the Ipswich Ale beer truck, and buffet catering by the Causeway restaurant. Games, a raffle and a silent auction put the FUN in this FUNdraiser. Dress in festive 20’s attire, wear historic nautical or come as you are. Costumes optional but encouraged! Swing Dancing to the live sounds of the Cape Ann Big Band and traditional sea songs by Three Sheets to the Wind add to the festivities for all. Families are welcome.
