Perhaps your only chance to cruise on a 150-foot, four-masted schooner whilst it’s under siege by pirates (or whilst it’s not, depending on which cruise you sign up for), one of Port Washington’s oddest traditions, the Port Washington Pirate Festival, returns for its fifth year. In addition to cruises there will be a buccaneer bash, historical displays and a pirate-themed parade. Don’t own an eye-patch? You can find one, along with other items, at the thieves’ marketplace. Hungry? Fill your belly in the “Gruel Galley.” Admission is free, though some events, like those cruises, cost extra. (Through Sunday).


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
