Description

Old Fort Niagara assumes a particularly festive air during the holiday season. Special activities kick off on Saturday evenings, December 10 and 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., as the Fort presents The Castle by Candlelight, a tour of the Great Lakes’ oldest building illuminated entirely by candles. Visitors to the event will also enjoy handmade natural decorations by the award-winning Youngstown Garden Club. Throughout the Castle, visitors will encounter members of the Fort’s 18th century garrison demonstrating everything from quill pens to fur trading to traditional games of skill. Twice each evening the garrison turns out to perform a grand feu de joie (firing of joy), a rolling fire of muskets and cannons. Cooks prepare a holiday feast, musicians play popular songs of the era and a Recollet priest reads the Christmas story in Latin in the Fort’s 296-year-old chapel. All proceeds go towards preserving and presenting the history of Old Fort Niagara.
