Step back in time to Loyalist Days, with the Gathering of Friends Rendezvous at Ameliasburgh Heritage Village.
Over the Victoria Day weekend, re-enactors camp on-site, living as Loyalists would have done in their earliest days in Canada, gathering around the cooking pot, playing games and indulging hobbies.
Visitors can join in the fun, with games for kids like hoop & rod or the frying pan toss, or watch demonstrations of atlatl throwing, an Indigenous mechanism for throwing spears.
Re-enactors want to share their passion for history and can help explain the rewards and risks of early settler life in The County. This is their 25th anniversary of re-enacting Loyalist Life at Ameliasburgh.
