Despite cold temperatures predicted for this weekend, Ft. Caspar will be holding its annual Candlelight at the Fort event on December 6th and 7th from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm at the Ft. Caspar site.

Ft. Caspar Museum Curator of Education Trey Corkern says the event affords visitors the opportunity to come face-to-face with history as actors in costumes show what life was like at the fort in the 1860s.

“There will be folks dressed up as soldiers, and you can talk to them about what the soldier’s daily life was like,” says Corkern.  “There’ll be people dressed up as folks on the Oregon trail, so you can ask what it was like for them to travel in a covered wagon across the great American desert, across the great plains.”

Hot cocoa and hot cider will also be available to warm visitors, there were also be children’s craft activities. The event will also be graced with an appearance by a special holiday guest.

“Father Christmas is going to be making an appearance,” says Corkern.  “He’s a tradition around here.  Soldiers did actually celebrate Christmas a little bit.  There will also be some Christmas Carols and some other things.  So, yes.  We are trying, very much, to get into the spirit.”

No reservations are needed for the event, and it is free to attend on both nights.
