Fun Birthday Party Ideas
Plan a Fun Birthday Party!
Planning a fun birthday party is top on the list for parents of kids of all ages. When we opened Pirate Adventures in 2003 we received a phone call in the very first day of operation “please tell me you host birthday parties?” The answer was “of course we host birthday parties” and years later we cannot even count how many birthday wishes we have made come true for both boys and girls. We offer birthday party packages and have added an indoor party room on-site (look for updates to the party room in the 2014 season). Pirate Adventures is a fun and exciting location to host a birthday party and we have made it a priority to make it easy and stress free to host a party with us. Our birthday parties include favors and invitations and can be customized to suit your little boy or girls birthday wishes. Check out our birthday party FAQs for more.
Along the way we have talked with countless parents looking for resources to help with fun birthday party ideas. The key word being fun, how can your child’s birthday party be fun for everyone, including Mom and Dad? We know planning a party can be overwhelming and it is helpful to get started with some ideas. Here is a list of resources that can help you get on your way to a fun birthday party this year:
