Come celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the start of the Mexican Revolution by attending this special family event.

Hands-on activities will include making your own special revolution button, playing Mexican board games, printing your own newspaper, creating a zoetrope and more. Keith Wilden of Paso del Norte Pistoleros will portray a soldier of the punitive expedition while other re-enactors in period costume will mingle with the crowd.
