Mississinewa 1812 Event - This Weekend (10/12-14)

Mississinewa 1812 is this weekend, outside of Marion, IN.  I'd never heard of this event before moving to the area, but have taken my kids the past couple of years, and it is pretty neat to see how people lived in 1812.  If you haven't been before, I suggest wearing good walking shoes, taking water bottles for your family, and making sure you have enough layers on to stay warm!  Plan on spending a couple of hours walking around, sampling the food (take some cash!), and of course, seeing the re-enactment.
