      regards to its 19th Century/War of 1812 encampment and historical displays
      that were set-up during there Celebrate Barrie Festival. They are looking
      to expand the 19th Century/War of 1812 encampment this year to include more
      presenters, displays, period musicians and a tactical arms and drill
      demonstration including period watercraft. We are looking for re-enactors
      to partake in this one day event at Heritage Park in downtown Barrie and are
