Buckskinners Are Back In Hartford

The Buckskinners Encampment is happening in the city of Hartford.

It begins on Friday, September 15 and runs through Sunday, September 17 at Woodlawn Park.

Hartford Mayor Tim Michalak encourages area families to attend this event.

"I would encourage you to go to the Buckskinners event, we are one of the few communities around here that has something like that. If you have never gone, please go...it is that turn of the century 1700s to 1800s type of camp that they put on and there are all sorts of things that you can do including a horse ride that goes around the area. It's a lot of fun. I would like to see them maintain it in the city of Hartford."  

It’s a great chance for families to come out and see what life was like with the settlers around the 1750s to 1850s.

There will be live demonstrations, food and handmade gifts.
