March Through Time this Weekend
The 19th annual multi-period living history encampment in Prince George's County, Marching Through Time, takes place this Saturday and Sunday, April 16 and 17 on the grounds of the Marietta House Museum. We stumbled on this event last year and really enjoyed it!
Originally from Pennsylvania (and near Gettysburg), I'm used to seeing Civil War reenactors, but I didn't realize that there are reenactors from pretty much every war out there! Last year at Marching Through Time, we saw soldiers from the Roman Legion, the Irish Republican Army, the Revolutionary War, WWI, WWII and many others! Lucas also loved the long bow and cannon demonstrations.
The entire event is free (even parking--go to the lot at the Glen Dale Community Center and take the free shuttle, it's much easier than trying to park along the busy road) but there are several vendors selling food and other wares. It would be the perfect place to find princess or knight gear for your little dress up artist.
