Gene Hunt, the park’s superintendent, says it’s a historic look at our state’s pioneer past.
“A group of Fort Kearny reinactors has been coming out here for years,” Hunt says. “They set up a living history area and portray camp life in the 1860s, which was during the Civil War time period. They’re in uniform and they fire the cannons at 2 o’clock every day and this year, they’ll be offering free wagon rides.”
This year’s event will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5 each day.
A five-dollar park permit is required to enter the park.
