River of Time

Held in Bay City Veterans Memorial Park on September 25 and 26, this living history event brings the past to life, from pre-colonial times through the Civil War. More than 600 re-enactors perform in several period encampment sites, marching fields, and battle re-enactments. Several historic buildings are open for view. In the Program Tent, the public can listen to and interact with "first person" re-enactors representing historically significant figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain. The Bay County Historical Society presents the free event.
