Wasaga Under Siege – Ships and Sails

Join us in commemorating the 205th Anniversary of the sinking of the HMS Nancy.  British Navel re-enactors will transport you back to the War of 1812 with sailing vessel and weaponry demonstrations. Metro Marine modellers will display and sail “model ships” on the river.  Children can enjoy model ship building, knot tying activities, and more!  Come and learn about all things “ship and sail” at the 2019 Wasaga Under Siege event. More information to following in the upcoming months.
