May 16, 2020, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Grand Kankakee Marsh
Peek into the lives of those who would have lived or traded along the waterways of the Midwest more than 250 years ago when the marshes were a source of valuable furs desired by merchant traders to take back to Europe. Meet Native Americans, French-Canadian canoe men, called Voyageurs, British and French militia, early settlers, and many others. There will be interactive reenactors, historic story telling, delicious food, and much more! Make sure to visit midday on Saturday and join the travelers challenge race, a race unlike any you’ve seen before.
