Pirates Seen in Every Cove – ‘Attacks’ Reported Likely      Those Mid-Lakes marauders are at it again!   Aug. 8 is Pirate Day aboard all Mid-Lakes Navigation cruises sailing Skaneateles Lake and the Erie Canal. Be on the lookout for takeovers, treasure heists and tons of water play.   Continuing his antics from last year, Capt. Jack will make a return appearance on the Judge Ben Wiles. “I’ll read to the kids, teach them about pirates, and prepare them for imminent attack,” he says, noting that he ad libs a lot and stays in character as a “goofy, crazy, fun-loving pirate” throughout the day.   Crew members will dress the part, and passengers are encouraged to do so, too. Prizes will be awarded for best boy’s costume and best girl’s costume on each of the sightseeing and lunch cruises, and for best boy’s, girl’s and adult costumes on the dinner cruises.   So that everyone can get in on the fun, pirate mugs, bandanas, eye patches, skull rings, earrings and swords will be for sale, and children will receive a free tattoo, trinket and pirate hat. A pirate menu will be available on the lunch cruises, and pirate drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be offered on all cruises.   The mailboat and lunch cruises on Skaneateles Lake are already booked, but space remains on the following:   • Lunch Cruise – 11 a.m. -1 p.m., on the Erie Canal (leaves from Dutchman’s Landing, 7490 Hillside Road, Baldwinsville). $29 adults; $24 children. Reservations required.   • Capt. Hat’s Mighty Sights (sightseeing cruises) – 2, 3 and 5 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $12 adults; $8 children; $40 family.   • Pirate Dinner Cruises – 6-9 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake and on the Erie Canal. $50 adults; $40 children. Reservations required.   • Take-Out Cruise – 6:30-8 p.m., on Skaneateles Lake. $15 adults; $10 children.   “We’re asking the entire shoreline community to help us keep the marauders at bay,” says Sarah Wiles, a co-owner and director of marketing at Mid-Lakes Navigation, tongue firmly in cheek.   For more information, call Mid-Lakes Navigation at (315) 685-8500 or go to www.midlakesnav.com.

  Skaneateles First Friday Introduces Victorian Dance Cards   In its continuing celebration of Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday, the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce has introduced Victorian dance cards to its First Friday celebrations, making participants eligible for monthly prize drawings.   The cards, supported by a grant from the Skaneateles Area Arts Council (SKARTS), will be distributed through December by participating merchants. Dance cards also contain a village map, identifying merchants taking part in that month’s celebration.   To be eligible for prize drawings, people must visit five different locations in one evening and get their cards stamped at each location. After obtaining their final stamp, they can turn the cards in to any participating merchant or to the Skaneateles Chamber, thus becoming eligible for that month’s prize drawing. The prize for August is a gift basket donated by Skaneateles Artisans.   First Friday, launched in 2008, is a community-wide arts celebration that runs 6 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month, May through December. Participating merchants identify themselves by flying First Friday flags outside their establishments.   On Aug. 3, opening receptions will be held at:   • Imagine, 38 E. Genesee St., for “Visions of Skaneateles,” featuring paintings by Lucie Wellner and photographs by James Pelluso.   • Skaneateles Artisans, 3 Fennell St. (under the Old Stone Mill), for “Romancing the Stone,” showcasing new design concepts by faux painter Teresa Vitale and jewelry designer Lisa Twombly.   • Gallery 54, 54 E. Genesee St., for “Precious Hues,” featuring fiber collage and quilts by Sharon Bottle Souva and sterling silver jewelry by Dana Stenson. In addition, Snake Oil Glassworks, 4251 Jordan Road, will celebrate “Get Lit” night, to mark the lighting of its newly constructed Furnace #3. Paris Flea, 23 Jordan St., will feature new works by Joyce Bond Backus. And at Isadora, 58 E. Genesee St., Kathleen Schneider’s nude pastels will be on display. Also open late will be 1st National Gifts, Creekside Books & Coffee (which will offer musical entertainment), Finger Lakes Photography, Fleur-de-lis Florist, Hobby House Toys, Mid-Lakes Navigation, Rhubarb, Roland’s, The Country Ewe, The Irish Store and the Village Bottle Shop.    For more information on First Friday, go to http://www.skaneateles.com or http://www.facebook.com/SkaneatelesFirstFriday.
