Hillsborough River State Park Campout and Fort Foster Candlelight Experience

Hillsborough River State Park Campout and Fort Foster Candlelight Experience

When: December 5th - 7th
Where: Hillsborough River State Park
Cost: none

This is a Pack campout you won't want to miss!  We will be camping Friday evening Dec 5th through Sunday morning Dec 7th at one of the Hillsborough River State Park youth camping sites.  You can not only look forward to an exciting activities agenda, smores and service projects, but we will also attend the Fort Foster Candlelight Experience.

Excerpt from FloridaStateParks.org:

"Historic Fort Foster brings the holiday season on the Florida Frontier to life! Guests follow a lantern-lit trail through the military Fort, where they encounter living history scenarios. Traveling musicians far from home play folk music to liven up the evening and guests enjoy warm cider & cookies from the ladies from Ft. Brooke/Tampa. Seminole Natives gather across the bridge on the Hillsborough River where they will lead you down a lantern-lit trail to visit a native encampment where you will hear Back in Time stories of native life in early Florida. A battle reenactment on Friday 12/7/12 and Saturday 12/8/12 will happen after 8:00 pm, as the Seminoles try to burn the bridge and the soldiers defend it."

If you have never visited Fort Foster, it is a reconstruction of the Fort from the Second Seminole War, located across the street from Hillsborough River State Park.  Its initial construction, to protect the ford across the Hillsborough River along the Fort King Military Road, was only three months after the ambush upon Major Dade's troops at Dade Battlefield, where we just attended Spook-O-Ree.  The Candlelight Experience will prove to be a fun and educational way to revisit an important time in Florida's history.
