Acasta Event Announcement

The Fair at New Boston
August 31 & September 1, 2013
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Both Days
George Rogers Clark Park, Springfield, OH

Scenario: It's 1813 and the war is in full swing. Officers and Sailors from the HMS Acasta have come to the fair at New Boston to recruit more men for His Majesty's Navy. There are quotas to meet, and if the Acastas can't get enough men to volunteer to join, they'll get what they need with a press gang.

A Royal Navy Lieutenant from the Acasta, accompanied by a group of surly looking Sailors armed with belaying pins and clubs make up the press gang. This gang will prowl the streets, lanes and taverns of New Boston in search of fresh recruits.

This is a fantastic educational and entertainment opportunity for the guests to the fair, a chance for them to see something that they've never seen before, but also to participate! This scenario can involve paying guests as well as the costumed participants and shouldn't last more than 10-15 minutes for those that are 'impressed' by the gang, but can certainly last longer for those that are interested.
