Historical re-enactors launch several bateaus during the ‘Crossroads of the French & Indian War’ event held June 16 and 17 in Bolton Landing.
Kelly O’Neil-Teer, owner of Serendipity Boutique in Bolton, organized a French-Indian War reenactment that took place weekend before last. Organized for the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce, this event was enjoyed by local families as well as tourists. The sounds and sights kept the crowds of all ages captivated. Rogers Park was transformed back to the 18th century where camps were set up and battles were fought. Hundreds of spectators got a good feel for what life was like living in a tent and cooking meals over a fire. Merchants displayed period clothing and tools that were authentically reproduced. The re-enactors visited many local restaurants and shops throughout the weekend, where people got to engage them in conversation and have their photos taken with them. Many people were heard asking about whether the event will be held next year — stay tuned!
