- Peter, Gord et al,
To answer your question on what is for breakfast at the Fanshawe 1812
event, I have a definitive answer.
Saturday breakfast will consist of scrambled eggs and bacon, with
fresh fruit, toast, orange juice, coffee and tea.
Sunday breakfast will consist of pancakes and sausage, with fresh
fruit, toast, orange juice, coffee and tea.
Breakfast will be served from 7-9am.
The village cafe will also be open to serve mid day meals with a
period appropriate buffet. The cost of the buffet will be $9.95 for
adults, and $5 for those 12 and under. Hotdogs will also be available
for the kids who might not wish to partake in the buffet. The buffet
will be available from 10am-4:30pm and will consist of;
Potato and leak soup
Fresh bread and biscuits
Coffee, tea or lemonade

Following this skirmish visitors have a chance to take a tour of the
native, artillery and military camps so please make it look great
(modern items out of view). This gives the visitor a chance to
understand why things are laid out the way they are or were and what
might be accurate and what might not be.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
