Friday October 17th
Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site, Louisbourg – 5:30 PM, Tickets: $150, General Admission
The Fortress of Louisbourg is a national treasure. The reconstructed village is a page from our history, exactly as it was in the early 18th century. We will make you part of the experience as the village comes alive at night with music, dancing, laughter and food. Picture tables large and small set with candles and pewter dishes, a delicious period meal with wine, friends sharing stories and laughter. Then out onto the streets with lanterns moving from one stone building to the next, music spilling into the street from several venues. A classical quintet in the engineer’s drawing room, story tellers by the fire in a quaint cottage, toe tapping fiddle music on the next corner, a square dance in the village hall, and wrapping up the evening at an 18th century pub bursting with Acadian songs and tunes. It’s an experience you’ll never forget!
* Restricted to 19 years and over.
