Fort Ligonier Days - October 14, 15 & 16!

British troops defend Fort Ligonier
Fort Ligonier Days is just around the corner - October 14, 15 and 16!  The Ligonier Valley Library will close at 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 13 and re-open at 10:00 am on Monday, October 17.

Enjoy food, crafters, entertainment, a parade, re-enactors, a street dance, fireworks, more food and more crafters... basically a whole lot of fun for all ages!

A highlight of Fort Ligonier Days is the various re-enactments and demos at the fort. British and French troops will invade and defend and mingle with visitors on Saturday and Sunday, lending a true feel for what life in 1758 was like. For more information, visit Fort Ligonier's website. Don't forget about the parade Saturday morning at 11 am and then stick around for the street dance and fireworks that night.

Official programs are available at the Chamber of Commerce and the Ligonier Valley Library. The programs are free and full of information. You can also visit the Chamber's Fort Ligonier Days page for more information.

The Ligonier Valley Library will be closed over the Fort Ligonier Days weekend. 

However, you can still use the online catalog to place reserves or renew your items (you'll need your library card and password/PIN). You can also use OverDrive to check out eBooks and audiobooks.

Have a fun Fort Ligonier Days weekend!!!
