Fort Clinch Holiday Encampment
Nov 26, 2012 02:00AM
But this weekend the Fort’s Living History is even more festive as ladies in their holiday finery will be trimming a Christmas tree and decorating the mantles for the holiday season. Sutlers display their wares, and drummer boys project the sounds of the civil war era. The program allows visitors to interact with living historians to experience life in the Fort as it was in 1864. This event is so much fun, and it’s great to watch children and families as they get into the spirit of the season as it was nearly 150 years ago.
The Holiday Encampment is held on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost is only $2 per person, plus the cost of entry into the park. And while you’re there, be sure to take a walk on the half mile fishing pier or go for a hike on one of their nature trails. For more information call: (904) 277-7274.
