Friday, May 1, will be a school day with the main activities taking place on Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3. There is no registration fee for re-enactors and living historians while the entry fee for spectators will be $5/day for everyone over 12 or a two day pass for $7.50. This year we are sharing the park with a blue grass jam festival. They will be in the front area of the park by the baseball field and the modern camping area while we will be set up in the same areas as last year: around the Paxton House, next to the river, and the horses will again be along the foot of the slope. The festival is Thursday - Saturday and there is no admission for that so re-enactors and living historians are invited to set up camp Wednesday and enjoy a day of blue grass on Thursday before our activities start Friday. Blue Grass and the Blue and Gray, a great combination. You can camp Sunday night and pack up and leave Monday. We will be providing re-enactors/living historians with dinner Saturday evening, an old fashioned hot dog roast with the fixings. We are also negotiating for on site food vendors during the event. Depending on the number of powder burners we will have either a small battle or demonstrations both days. We are in the process of setting the schedule and will be posting more information after New Years.
