Heading to Lamoni
This coming weekend I am headed to Lamoni, Iowa, to photograph and film the Civil War Days reenactment. They have a number of historical attractions and events associated with Civil War Days including old-time music, period toys and games, and a lady’s tea. You can also visit period sutlers, a blacksmith, a medical tent, etc. etc. And you will obviously see lots of Federal and Confederate soldiers. For details about the event CLICK HERE.
I know this is Labor Day weekend so you may already have plans… But, if you can spare a day, consider heading to Lamoni. The reenactment is just over an hour south of Des Moines and is near the Missouri border. Here is what the Des Moines Register said about the event in past years:
“One of the top 10 coolest things to do in Iowa over Labor Day weekend” Des Moines Register 2005 & 2007
“One of the ’10 Best Bets’ in south-central Iowa for summer fun” Des Moines Register 2007
A spotlighted Labor Day activity for Iowa families Des Moines Register 2011
