What is a better way to inspire your kids to learn more about the U.S. history than seeing a living history encampment? Started in 1990, the River of Time Living History Encampment is a free educational event for people of all ages. Every year, the encampment draws up to 900 re-enactors from around the Midwest, who come to dress and live the roles of Native Americans, Colonists, French voyageurs, and Civil War-era soldiers!
In the outdoor setting of Veterans Memorial Park on the bank of the Saginaw River, the River of Time showcases a time-line of eras in the history of North America, Michigan, and Bay County. In addition to live reenactments, the River of Time demonstrates the 18th century crafts and music. The River of Time also offers children activities including an historical puppet show.
