Frontier festival wraps up

January 14, 2007

Albany--Many south georgians experienced one final blast from the past Sunday.

Hundreds came out to enjoy the final day of the Frontier Festival at the Parks at Chehaw.

There, they got a chance to explore american history from the 1700's and 1840's.

Demonstrators were on hand to show visitors how to start a fire with fling and steel as well as how to fire black powder flintlock rifles.

Organizers say so far the event has been a success.

"It's a great educational event to bring people to the park and give people another reason to visit Chehaw and to have fun and if they're not careful learn American history in a very unique way," says organizer, Ben Kirkland.

The festival is in its fourteenth year at the park.

So far, about 2,000 people have visited the park's Frontier Festival over the past three days.
