Plimoth Plantation is auctioning off the services of a Pilgrim and a Wampanoag Inidan for Thanksgiving dinner.
The bidding for the 17th-century event will have a distinctly 21st century flavor. It will take place Oct. 2-11 on E-Bay.
Two interpreters from the plantation, the Native Hobbamock and the Englishman Edward Winslow will appear in character at the winner's Thanksgiving feast anywhere in the United States.
"People come from all over the world to spend Thanksgiving with us at Plimoth Plantation, to learn more about the true history of America’s most beloved holiday and enjoy the spirit of the season,” museum executive director John McDonagh said in a press release. "But not everyone can make the pilgrimage to Plymouth for the holidays… so we decided to produce a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring 1621 Plymouth anywhere in America."
The winning bidder will be responsible for accommodations and transportation.
