Niagara on the Lake has been in a bit of a frenzy of re-enactment and history buffs are beside themselves with glee. The Town is celebrating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and there have been battles and fireworks aplenty with events continuing through 2014. Below is the funeral of Sir Isaac Brock. Yet to come is the burning of Niagara which I'm hoping will not be too realistic as I don't wish to become homeless.
This whole extravaganza is being spun as "200 Years of Peace'" rather than Canada's victory over the invading Americans because, being polite Canadians, we wouldn't want to offend our neighbours to the south.
