Pirates on Parade, ay matey t’is gonna B a big show! Get dressed in your pirate themed finery, show up as a Captain Jack Sparrow, a Davy Jones, Blackbeard, Anne Bonny, Jeanne de Clisson, or a parrot, or swashbuckler, or even a cannon shooter – the goal is to just show up and join in the fun! This parade will be a big bunch of fun – all parade participants will join our Entertainment Leader(s) on the SS NipClub where they will have a toast to all that is ‘pirate-like’ and then get ready to strut their stuff up and down the plank and whomever gets the most ‘oooooohhhhs’ and ‘aaaaaaahhhhs’ will win a prize at the end of the parade. Also, remember that floats can be a part of a parade – so don’t feel like you have to dress up as a person or creature, you can also post a picture of your float and tweet it out going up and down the plank. It’s all good – and everyone will welcome and appreciate your creativity. Also, bring trinkets to toss out at the parade onlookers – the watchers like goodies, whether candy or gold coins or even beads, just bring some fun things to toss in to the crowd and help create some instant fun. Make sure you join in at the times listed and you’ll have a great time!

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you found a ‘genie in a bottle?’ What would you do if you found a genie? What things would you wish for, what problems would you solve, indulgences would you participate in, what would your genie look like, is your genie a he or a she? So many questions!! Well get your thinking cap on because this is your chance to make your biggest dreams come true. How will you find the ‘Genie in a Bottle?” Well it’s a scavenger hunt – so whomever follows the Entertainment Leader(s) clues and ends up finding the Genie will get to have their wish granted – virtually we mean. The Entertainment Leader(s) will gather anipals on the sandy beaches of the deserted island and lead anipals in a game of hunt and seek, warmer/colder until one lucky anipal finds the potential real Genie bottle. Potential? Yup – there will be eight (8) Genie bottles hidden on the island, some of them will just be dirty, dusty lamps… and some, well, they’ll have the magical wish granting Genie in them! But how will you know? You won’t – you’ll follow the clues and when you find a Genie bottle you’ll rub, rub, rub, rub, rub. and you’ll either get a face full of dust or a Genie – only the Entertainment Leader(s) will know for sure. But boy if you get one of those magical Genies you’ll be in luck – stand back and wish big (and indulgently) and tweet your wish outloud and stand back while the Entertainment Leader(s), speaking on behalf of the Genies, grant your wishes (could be literal or interpreted in a weird way…. so be clear in your wishes or you may be surprised)! Join during the times listed and bring your polishing cloth to buff up the Genie bottles!

Scuba diving pirate anipals – that’s gotta be worth some serious gold! Join the Entertainment Leader(s) on the sandy beaches and get ready for some fun – searching for sunken treasure! Seems that Captain Kitty Claw sailed his ship across the ocean only to meet up with Pirate Poochie Pants, and a dual ensued. A duel so intense that Captain Kitty Claw’s crew tossed their bounty of treasures overboard just to be safe and ensure that Pirate Poochie Pants would not get his paws on the sparkly gold coins. As history tells it, Captain Poochie Pants’ team flung catnip on to the hull of Captain Kitty Claws ship, at the same time as the Captain and his crew flung bones at the Pirate’s boat…. needless to say, all of the animals (pirates and captains teams) lost interest in safehousing the treasure and it sunk to the bottom of the ocean. This is where you come in – you get your chance at taking a deep sea dive to find the bazzilions of dollars worth of sunken treasure! Joiin the Entertaiment Leader(s), take your diving training and get certified, hoist on your breathing aparatus, put on some flippers (unless your fish and brought your own), and take turns diving for the treasure! You may get lucky and bring up bountiful treasure… or you could end up with a jelly fish, only the Entertainment Leader(s) will know for sure and will let you know when you come up to show off your ‘treasure.’ How do you better your chances at having the Entertainment Leader(s) identify your capture as a priceless treasure? Well, it’s in all how you tweet out and interact during your your dive(s)! So bring your funny bone and join in the fun during the times listed below.

The goal of this hour – be the fanciest diver off of the SS NipClub! How will you do that – all in how you tweet anipals! First you’ll get dressed up in your swimming finery and sashay down the plank, bounce, bounce, bounce, swan dive and the rest is your magical imagination! You could do a triple somersault, a back flip with glitter spraying out of your swimsuit, a swan dive with real swans floating behind you, or a belly flop landing on an ocean full of bouncy jelly. Also, you don’t just land in the water – you swim to the top and spin about for a while, masking in the cheers of your fans and onlookers. These are just ideas, the only thing holding you back – your super awesome imagination! Just join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed, bring all of your gear (your sparkly swimsuit, swans, glitter, what-have-you) and get inline to take the plunge. Speaking of the plunge, wouldn’t it be really hilarious if you showed up with real live Polar Bears to join you in the plunge? Well, it would be scary and hilarious at the same time! We’re looking forward to seeing you during the time(s) listed, just look for the Entertainment Leader(s) and when you are called upon, jump off the plank with all of your (dramatic) gusto!-/p0
