The national parks service will now be hosting historic weapons demonstrations every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Castillo De San Marco. (St. Augustine fort)
For just the price of admission you can now watch professionals reenact and demonstrate musket and cannon firings 5 times a day. The weapons firing simulates the equipment and procedures the soldiers would have used in 1740 to defend the cornerstone of the city. Demonstration times are 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. (Subject to change based on weather)
The Castillo is the oldest stone fortification in the United States, dating back to Colonial Spanish time in 1672. Its rich history provides a perfect day time activity for guests of all ages. This incredible piece of our nations history is located just a 5 minute walk away from Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast, making us the perfect place to rest your head while vacationing in the nation’s oldest city.
