6/2 – Drake’s Raid
This tent looks harmless enough… but the brigands who are camped inside will be responsible for the pillaging and burning of St. Augustine Saturday night. Visit The Fountain of Youth from 10 am – 5 pm to see drills & demonstrations by the soldiers. Then, at 7:00, witness the hoard ransaking and burning the city from the City Gates to the Plaza!
