Fort Vancouver Lantern tour

Now that the days are getting shorter, Fort Vancouver is hosting their evening events.  Last night, it was the Lantern Tour.  A limited number of people are given lanterns, and Fort Vancouver Guides give tours of the facilities.  There is no electricity or modern facilities, everyone experiences how things were in the 18409’s.

There are volunteers in period costumes to re-enact typical evening activities.  Experiencing an evening in this manner is a lot of fun.  All in all, a very pleasant (and educational)  and interesting evening.
