On the program:
👉Period encampment led by the Habitants de la Nouvelle-France, with shoemaker, cooper, tailor, trapper, washerwoman and coureur des bois.
👉1740 military guardhouse presented by the Compagnie de Lacorne, with weapons demonstrations, period games and crafts.
👉Recruitment of apprentice soldiers by recruiting sergeants from Productions Oyez Oyez on Wellington St.
