Looking for something to do in the Newmarket area this weekend?  Check out the Elman W. Campbell Museum’s Rebel Heartland 1837 Event.  The south end of Fairy Lake Park will be transformed into a 19th century military encampment, and later in the afternoon, there will be a reenactment of the Battle of Montgomery’s Tavern.

Adding to the festivities will be wagon rides and performances by Scottish country dancers and the Newmarket Citizens Band.  2012 marks the 175th Anniversary of the Rebellion, so don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime commemoration!
