This is a great opportunity to see the historic Hudson's Bay Fort Connah Trading Post come to life! This event will be free to the public and includes demonstrations of time-era activities; bullet making, rope making, flint knapping, fire starting, wool spinning, more crafts and kids games.
Main events will be held Saturday 10 a.m.5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.3 p.m. Amish horse cart rides to the fort on Saturday. Buffalo burgers and baked goods sale.
Early setup is Thursday, September 56, for Buckskinner Camp and vendors. Friday evening a campfire memorial for Rawhide will be held.
