The 7th Annual Pellicer Creek Raid battle reenactment will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15, 2017, at the Florida Agricultural Museum. This annual event gives visitors a chance to see what military life was like in 1864. The historic demonstrations take place over two days and include Civil War battle reenactments and military parades, as well as an authentic re-creation of a Civil War encampment.
At the Pellicer Creek Raid encampment re-creation, visitors can hear stories from the soldiers about life in Florida during that time. Vendors in period dress will be selling historical clothing, baked goods, and more.
The parade will take place on the museum grounds on Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon, followed by the battle reenactment at 1 p.m. The battle lasts about an hour and features costumed participants and life-like weapons demonstrations with rifles, cannons, and more. Around 250 people participate in this heritage event every year.
