Going back in time...to 1812?

The last few years this very weekend we've been in Indiana heading to the 1812 festival with my sister and brother in law. Sadly, we couldn't go this year because of a wedding in Drew's family, but I realized I never posted about last year so I'm going back in time to the festival that takes place back in time. Ha. Think Renaissance festival (if you have those), but better.
I wish we were all together drinking home made Rootbeer, buying cool handmade knick knacks and watching battle reenactments together. Hopefully we can rekindle the tradition next year!!

Have you ever been to a festival like this?

This looks like a blast! I'm not into renaissance fests, but I went to college in colonial Williamsburg so this is right up my alley. :)
