The Prince and the Prior

Museum with Folks in period dress

Arnprior & District Museum with people in 1860's dress.

Friday, 02 July, 2010.

The photo is from last week and has a man and a woman in period dress standing in front of the Museum.

‘Animators’, people in period dress, have been going out into the area towns to publicize the big event which will begin with people milling about from about 9:30 am.

The ‘Prince’ should arrive at Robert Simpson Park’s Beach between 10 and 10:30 am. (Do not try to get to the beach in a motor vehicle.)

There will be a reception near the beach in which re-enactors will re-enact greeting the Prince of Wales with flowers and singing, and proclamations.

There will be a dinner at what was the McLaughlin estate, which is now the Gallilee Centre.

People in period dress will be milling about the town until approximately 4 pm.
