2017 Fort Ligonier Days - Oct 13-14-15th, Ligonier PA


Smail Auto Group is a proud sponsor of the Fort Ligonier Days, and every year we look forward to being involved in this spectacular community event. In this episode of "Cars in the Community," see highlights from the 2017 Fort Ligonier Days, featuring the parade (with Smail vehicles providing transportation for many of the special guests like Jeff Jimmerson, Sally Wiggin, and Charlie Batch!), food and craft booths, and reenactments at Fort Ligonier.
 
The 3-day fall festival commemorates the Battle of Fort Ligonier, a key engagement of the French and Indian War fought on October 12, 1758. The weekend is highlighted by a parade on Saturday morning, including historic units, floats, costumed characters special guests, including local TV personalities, high school, and college bands. In addition, the whole weekend is packed with events and activities. Talented artisans will display and sell handmade items, food vendors serve a variety of foods, and local entertainment acts perform throughout the weekend. On the grounds of the Fort you will find a living history encampment showing frontier life, military tactics, drills, cannon firing, ceremonies, Highlanders, redcoats, French troops, frontier men and women, Indians and music from 1758. Visit the official website of Fort Ligonier for additional information. 
 

*UPDATE*
We had so much footage from our time at the Fort Ligonier Days Parade that we weren't able to use in our previous video, that we knew we just had to put together a super cut of our footage to share. We have shots of pretty much all of the parade, with some live narration, and of course all the wonderful sights and sounds of the marching bands. Enjoy!
