Festivities will be held this Friday through Sunday at Rotary Park and a few other locations. Rotary Park will be transformed into a Civil War-era camp, complete with blacksmith and medical tents among the other attractions. At one p.m. both Saturday and Sunday the battle re-enactment will be held in the field just north of the amphitheater. In regards to parking for the weekend Snider has helpful details on what to expect.
