Imagine it’s 1750 in the middle of winter on the Niagara frontier at Fort Niagara. What is it like to be a soldier? How are you keeping warm? What are your relationships with the Native people?At Winter Woods Battle, the French occupying forces (portrayed by re-enactors) escort you on a snowshoe trek into the woods where British Rangers engage the French in a mini battle in the woods.
Once it’s over, they’ll serve you hot chocolate over an open fire!
Back at the French Castle, you’ll find hands-on, family-friendly, indoor and outdoor educational program about surviving winters at the fort in the 1700s. Weather permitting, snowshoes will be provided by the NYS Parks Dept. (first-come, first-served) or bring your own. Please dress for the cold outdoors.
Cost: Everything is included with regular admission: $13/adult, $9/child, free/5 and under and members.
Tickets can be purchased at the door and be sure to RSVP On Facebook!
