Wes and Donna Griffin will perform period music on the hammered dulcimer on June 28. Re-enactors portraying members of the Clark Family and 18th- and 19th-century militiamen, surveyors and frontiersmen will appear throughout the event. The event also will include atlatl throwing (American Indian spear throwing), vendors with period crafts, speakers, musicians, children’s activities and more.
