Experience the day-to-day lives of soldiers and their families who lived in the Presidio in the late 1700s. Demonstrations of children’s games, candle making, weaving, and blacksmithing are held, and fresh baked bread and handmade tortillas are available to sample. Soldiers practice their drills and fire a four-pound bronze cannon, a replica of cannons used at the Presidio in the late 1700s. Interactive opportunities allow visitors to pump the bellows of the blacksmith’s forge, spin cotton and learn how the soldiers fire their muskets. Different aspects of Living History Days are spotlighted throughout the year. Upcoming spotlights are: March 10; Southwest Gardening - April 14. Admission to Living History Days is included in admission.
