This annual event held on the banks of the Saginaw River in Veterans Memorial Park draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in Michigan's past.  Representing time periods from pre-contact Native Americans, Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, Civil War, and the great World Wars, this free, family-oriented, educational event is a wonderful way to look back at simpler if not more difficult times.  The event brings in thousands of people every year including school groups from all over the area.
