Last week I received the following press release from the Niagara Falls Museum:
July 10, 2013 For Immediate Release
As Niagara Falls prepares for the 200th anniversary of the Battles of Chippawa and Lundy’s Lane, the 199th anniversary events that are planned will have something for everyone. We are continuing with our month filled with great events on Thursday, July 18th during our @ the Museum Thursday Night series with an event called “Impersonating 1812”.
Starting at 6 p.m., visitors to this free family night will see, smell and partake in life during the War of 1812. Working with local reenactors, the museum will host a fashion show, where you will see the clothing soldiers and civilians would have worn in Niagara Falls in the early 19th century.
We also have sutlers selling their wares and also discussing such things as flowers, herbs, quilting and needle work.
Kids will have a chance to join in a mini militia and march with soldiers. There will be something for everyone and all ages as the night will end with a presentation of music and dance, as the Regency Dancers will put on some moves and give a few tips on how to do it.
This free event will be a great way to have some fun on a Thursday night in the Main and Ferry area. Check out our website for more great 1812 events such as “Hear the Cannons Roar” & “Petticoats, Boots and Muskets”.
