Civil War Days, Super Sized!

This year the Civil War Days are being held on the same weekend as several fabulous events in the Eastern Thumb area, August 2nd & 3rd.
In addition to the usual Civil War Days activities, Port Sanilac will be host to an Antique Wooden Boat festival, the Tin Can Campers, and the inaugural East Ports Blues Festival.  All of these are free, so do plan on making a weekend of it!

Besides all that, Lexington, only 11 miles south, will be having their Street Art Fair this Saturday and Sunday.  So there really is so much fun to be had on this weekend.

Here is the schedule for activities on the grounds of the Sanilac County Historic Village and Museum:
