The event begins Friday when Fort Taylor is invaded by local school groups. The day ends with a memorial at Clinton Square followed by a soldier’s march down Duval Street. Saturday peaks with a sea battle between the fort and blockade runners. Sunday, the fort will host a morning church service with live music followed by a blockade runners’ trial.
The park is open from 8 a.m. until sunset.
