Posted July 16, 2013  by NIAGARA FALLS REVIEW Source

It’s going to look a lot like 1812 this summer at the Niagara Falls Museum.

In the midst of the War of 1812 anniversary, events will run every Thursday night at the Ferry St. venue starting July 18 with the event Impersonating 1812.

Starting at 6 p.m., visitors to this free family night will see, smell and partake in life as it was during the War of 1812. Working with local re-enactors, the museum will host a fashion show, with garments soldiers and civilians would have worn in Niagara Falls during the early 19th century.

There will also be sutlers selling their wares and discussing needle work, quilting, herbs and flowers.

Kids can join in a mini militia and march with soldiers. The night will end with music and dancing by the Regency Dancers.

Upcoming events at the museum include Hear the Cannons Roar and Petticoats, Boots and Muskets.
