This past weekend visitors and re-enactors gathered to celebrate the 25th Annual Siege at Old Fort Erie. This is Canada’s largest battle re-enactment weekend, which portrays the excitement and drama of the War of 1812. With the addition of a new visitors centre at Old Fort Erie, Niagara Parks was proud to showcase this new facility to the public and help celebrate the enduring peace which has lasted between Canada and its US neighbours since that time. The Niagara Parks Commission would like to thank its visitors and all those re-enactors that participated in this monumental weekend.
If you did not get a chance to make it to the 25th Annual Siege weekend be sure to make your way to Old Fort Erie soon. You will be inspired by the new facilities and the history that happened on the grounds of Old Fort Erie.
