Frontier Festival comes to town

Neal Parr Neal Parr
Chehaw is helping folks step back in time this weekend.

Teepees and campfires are set up for the 21st annual Frontier Festival. Demonstrations and competitions will take you back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Volunteers set up a little villages and teach folks about their culture and history. "A history not told and passed on is like a history that never happened, it is lost forever. And the children can come out and see how the native americans live, how the frontier people lived," said Neal Parr, a volunteer.

The festival is included in park admission. This year, you can spend the night in a 16 foot wide teepee for 50 dollars a night. Call the ticket booth at 229.430.5275 for more information about reserving a teepee.
