Deep River Ancient Muster

A fife and drum parade of some 70 units from around the world, the Muster is held annually on the third Saturday in July. In modern times it has been held since 1953, but it reenacts the earliest such event, which took place in 1879.

Originally submitted by: Sam Gejdenson, Representative (2nd District).
