Things are starting to heat up at Pricketts Fort State Park.

An 18th century firearms and accoutrements show, the first event of the year, will take place Feb. 24-26 at the fort.

Hours are 1-6 p.m. Friday, Deb. 24; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25; and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.

Admission is $3 for each day.

“This is a brand-new event,” said executive director Melissa May.

“It’s basically a three-day gun show, but not the type of gun show most people are used to attending with contemporary firearms.

“This will focus on 18th century firearms … like muzzle loaders … and accoutrements.”
