Cannons, muskets and more on tap in Duluth this weekend
Lester River Rendezvous runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday
DULUTH — The Lester River Rendezvous is your entry into all things 1800s northern wilderness.
From 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, skilled reenactors will immerse visitors into tasks of early frontier settlers, such as blacksmithing and candle-making at Lester River Road and Superior Street.
The cost is free and open to all.
The 23rd annual event features more than 50-plus craft vendors, food trucks, a mobile petting zoo and a free kids fun zone with games and prizes.
Also, schools were invited to participate during Thursday and Friday’s educational program, where reenactors offer Northland students hands-on activities from a day in the life of a late 1700s and early 1800s fur trader. Among them: baking, bartering, tanning hides and hatchet throwing.
The rain date is Sept. 25.
