FALL RIVER RENDEZVOUS SEPT. 24

FALL RIVER RENDEZVOUS SEPT. 24

Sept. 15, 2011
Park visitors will step back in time at this living history event
TORONTO — On Sept. 24, visitors to Fall River State Park have the opportunity to step back to the early 19th century at the Fall River Rendezvous. This historical event celebrates one of America's largest public land acquisitions, the Louisiana Purchase. Mountain men and American Indian encampments, blackpowder and archery shooting, tomahawk and skillet throws, living history presentations, and activities for all ages will be included.

Traders and artisans will ply their crafts, sell historical goods, and conduct demonstrations throughout the day. Contests for the whole family will make the day even more exciting.

The event coincides with Free Park Entrance Day at Fall River, so no daily vehicle permit is required. (Camping permits are still required.) The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The musical group Cedar Creek Crossing will perform live in concert on Friday, Sept. 23, and concessions will be available Saturday.

Enjoy the day learning about the 1800 to 1840 time period in American history. For more information, phone 620-637-2213 or email fallriversp@ksoutdoors.com.
