On August 16th 1812, British forces under the command of General Brock (think Brock Street), and Natives under Chief Tecumseh (think Tecumseh Road) captured the walled town of Detroit.

This weekend the City of Windsor will commemorate the history of the War of 1812 with a free public festival.

The festival includes a symbolic march from the Duff Baby House (221 Mill Street) in Olde Sandwich Towne, and ends at the Riverfront Festival Plaza with games, crafts, art, music, live performances, and period costumes for photo keepsakes. You can also catch a free outdoor concert by The Windsor Symphony Orchestra
