A couple of weekends ago we went down to Farmington to Dakota City. A customer from my shop was participating in a Civil War re-enactment and invited us to check it out. It was great fun and the actors (I guess you call them) really stayed in character. We not only witnessed the cannons being fired with real gunpowder, but toured most of the building on the site. I would highly recommend Dakota City to anyone that's going to be in the Farmington area. Check out their website for the upcoming events around Christmas...I heard a rumor that Santa was going to be there!
