Time to unmask yourself at this Midsummer's Night Masquerade Cruise for the LGBTQ+ community! A farewell summer party on the water, you'll travel onboard this double-decker cruise traveling with 150+ LGBTQ friends. Departing from downtown Salem's Pickering Wharf and coasting throughout the Salem Sound and North Shore coastline, we will launch in daylight and dock after sunset. With a top deck dance floor and music by the ever-so-popular DJ Andrea Stamas, two cash tiki bars, catered party food, a canopy above, decorative eco-friendly LED lighting, a heated main deck, and a whole lot of fabulousness onboard, there's absolutely no better time to be OUT on the water.
Don't forget your masquerade mask*! Be as elaborate or low key as you like.
