TORONTO, June 17, 2015 /CNW/ - This weekend won't just be a celebration of our fathers – but our forefathers too. For two days this weekend, more than 100 British, American and First Nations soldiers will do battle at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, 2015
This annual event features all the sounds and sights of the Revolutionary War, as the Village comes alive with the roar of cannon and musket fire in an authentic historic war re-enactment. Visitors can wander through the Village, explore military encampments, witness the Trooping of the Colours and see the battle unfold right before their eyes.
The weekend's activities offer the thrill of discovery for everyone. For children, there's a rubber band shooting gallery, writing and decoding secret messages and the chance to see adorable farm animals at the Village barns. For adults, there are musket demonstrations and an invitation to visit Black Creek Historic Brewery, sample beers made the old-fashioned way, and take home a growler of Ginger Ale, brewed exclusively for the Battle of Black Creek.
