Re-enactment of Goliad massacre set
The Crossroads of Texas Living History Association and Presidio La Bahia will stage the 27th annual Re-enactment of the Goliad Massacre Saturday and Sunday, March 24-25, beginning at 9 a.m. each day at the Presidio La Bahia on U.S. 183 in Goliad.
Spectators can experience history come to life as muskets fire, cannons boom, and battles take place around the fort. Candlelight evening tours will be given at 7 p.m.
Sunday will begin with the death march, a portrayal of the funeral procession that originally took place more than two months after the massacre, and will conclude with a memorial service.
Daily admission will be $4 for ages 12-59, $3.50 for 60 and older, and $1 for ages 6-11. Children under 5 are free. There will be an additional $2 per person fee for admission to the candlelight tour.
