St. Peter's Celebrates the 300th. Anniversary of Fort Toulouse

Your are invited to a Celebration of our History!
Saturday August 3rd. St. Peter's Celebrates the 300 Anniversary of Fort Toulouse. The indentation may be all that's left of this historic Fort but we plan on celebrating it's rich historic period in time. The Village has set aside one complete day which will be jam packed with events to commemorate the anniversary. There will be cultural ceremonies and demonstrations, 18th Century musket demonstrations and Cannon Salutes, an 18th century market, information sessions, and a 18th Century Beggar's Banquet and the special performance of a Scottish Lilt choreographed especially for the Fort Toulouse Celebrations, as well as a full schedule of excellent entertainment. It is sure to be a super day of events. I hope you will have the opportunity to come out and join us for the celebrations. A full schedule of events are listed below.
