THE DESERT’S PAST COMES ALIVE AT “VALLECITO DAYS” MARCH 10, 11 WITH CIVIL WAR REENACTORS

 March 1, 2012 (Julian) -- Imagine making a brutal desert crossing on a San Diego-bound stagecoach and coming to a station with water, food and the first sign of greenery for miles.  Or marching east across the desert during the Civil War as a Union volunteer from California, determined to reach Arizona or New Mexico to halt invading Confederates. 

 
Scenes like these from the 1850s and 1860s frontier will come to life at the sixth annual “Vallecito Days” at Vallecito Stage Station County Park Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11. The festival runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
