River of Time Living History Encampment
Veterans Memorial Park, Bay City 
 No admission charge - donations welcome to help this event to continue
 
   This living history timeline draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in Michigan's past. Visit camps representing time periods from pre-contact Native Americans through the Vietnam War. Visit "Sutlers Row", watch period skirmishes and battle re-enactments, enjoy period music and more. This free, family-oriented, educational event is a wonderful way to look back at simpler if not more difficult times.
