From the website:

Take a step back in time to the eve of the War of 1812 with 1800s music- Caribbean drums, gospel choir and classical songs – children’s games, farm animals, 1800s trade and craft demonstrations, food – old time favorites, bar-b-que and Native American food – and heirloom plant and craft sale.  Browse the May Basket competition entries, take a springtime walk and let the kids play!
