Fights of cavalry and infantry, weapons salvas, smell of powder clubs of smoke - festival battles are carried out on a large scale. Guests are given the opportunity to dip into the atmosphere of those distant days not only as viewers, but also as direct participants of the events of the War of 1812. They can, for example, temporarily reclassify as a front surgeon and get a bullet out of a "wound," or try themselves as a blacksmith and forge a horseshoe for a horse.
According to tradition, military-historical clubs and associations specializing in reconstruction of costume, weapons, armor and equipment of the 19th century will take part in the "battle."
