Fort Parker was filled with Colonial Period characters over this past weekend, from hunters, trappers, farmers, craftsmen, merchants, voyagers and town folk, along with women of various backgrounds. There were also soldiers dressed in French, Spanish, American and British uniforms. The group putting on the event were called The 18th Century Society of Texas and has appeared at the fort for the past three years. Shown in the picture is another group of performers called the Victorian Fencing Society of Dallas, demonstrating fencing techniques. Check out more pictures from the event inside.
