Go Back in Time at Colonial Faire and Muster

The Georgia Historical Society is presenting a Colonial Faire and Muster at Wormsloe State Historic Site on Saturday and Sunday, February 5 and 6, 2011 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. The event is free and open to the public.
Visitors can see, hear and experience everyday life during colonial times through activities and demonstrations by on-site interpreters. There will be historical re-enactments, cannon firings, music and dance, and demonstrations of cooking and craft techniques.
As part of the GHS's Georgia History Festival, over 40 museums, historic homes, national forts, state historic sites and other cultural institutions commemorate the founding of Georgia on what is referred to as Super Museum Sunday. The event takes place on Sunday, February 6. Participating museums and historic sites in coastal Georgia and surrounding areas open their doors to the public free of charge from 12 noon to 4:00 pm.
Some of the Museums open here in the Historic District and close by are: Andrew Low House Museum, Isaiah Davenport House Museum, Telfair's Jepson Center for the Arts, Telfair's Owens-Thomas House, Telfair Academy, Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Ships of the Sea Museum, Harper Fowlkes House, Fort Pulaski, Old Fort Jackson, Tybee Island Light Station and Museum and this is just a few. You can see the whole list, which is amazingly long at the GHS site http://www.georgiahistory.com
This is going to be an amazing weekend filled with lots to see and do, and all for free! Don't miss it I know I won't.
