Cost: Free

History fills your senses at the historical re-enactment at Pointe Basse on Oct. 1st and 2nd 2016.

See life as it was lived at a French outpost during the fur trade era…artisans demonstrating traditional crafts that were necessary for survival–participants dressed in authentic reproductions of clothing worn by people in all walks of 18th century life…the splendor of 18th century military drills.

Smell the fragrances from kettles simmering over the open fires and the pungent smell of wood smoke…molten lead, hot iron, and acrid haze of black powder mingling with the scent of melting candle wax.

Taste the flavors from another century, as participants prepare traditional foods over an open fire–parched wild rice with maple sugar, spiced apple cider and roasted pumpkins filled with blueberries and cranberries.
