It'll feature re-enactments, camp skill competitions and food vendors that'll be serving up the old-fashioned style food.

"Basically we started out to show 4th graders what life was like 250-200 years ago in this area because this is a historic place, this is where the Indians and the traders and the trappers all met to exchange things," says Mary Brown, an organizer.

It starts at 9:00am both Saturday and Sunday.
