The annual Crossroads of the French and Indian War encampment and battle reenactment will fill Rogers Park in Bolton Landing this Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15. This is the third year for the event, brainchild of local business owner Kelly O’Neil-Terr. Colonial reenactors will pitch their tents to recreate an 18th century encampment, complete with sutlers hawking their wares.

Authentically dressed soldiers we be using real black powder and navigating the flat-bottomed bateaux used in 18th century battles on Lake George. Spectators can expect to see Haudenosaunee and Mohican warriors join in the fray. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Land and water Battles will take place on both days at 2 p.m.

Admission is free. Parking at the park is $5; free parking is available on the road, at the Town Hall and in the parking lot across the street from the Bolton Chamber of Commerce. Contact the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce for more information at (518)644-3831.
