This weekend marks the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Allatoona Pass. In honor of this the Georgia State Parks and the Friends of Georgia State Parks along with several reenactment groups are hosting a living history event. There will be a “tent city” area showing what life was like for the soldiers and civilians of the time as well as musket firing and artillery demonstrations. I have been told that they will be placing a cannon in one of the original existing fortifications to do the artillery demonstration.
The day time demos will take place on Saturday from 9am to 4pm and on Sunday from 9am to 2pm. There is a special candle light tour on Saturday night with tours that start every half hour from 7pm until 9pm. There is a cost of $10.00 per person for the night tour. You must reserve your tour here: Allatoona Pass Nighttime Tours
The information for the tour states that it is not appropriate for children due to the darkness, terrain, and loudness of cannon fire. It is also not ADA compliant. I have been on the trails there and they can be steep with some tripping hazards, especially in the dark. It will be cold so dress warm.
