BIG POOL, Md. - Visitors can take a stroll through the nation's early history this weekend at Fort Frederick State Park during the third annual Market Fair and Rifle Frolic.
Re-enactors will portray traders and "sutlers" in full costumes from the 1640s to the 1840s showing and selling their wares.
The three-day event started Friday. It will continue today from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine. The entry fee is $3 per person. Proceeds support Fort Frederick.
"It's a village that blooms in about a day's time, then it disappears in a day's time," said Dan Eshelman, 55, chief of the Market Fair and Rifle Frolic.
