Chehaw Park officials say the frontier festival was a huge success this year. Well over 1,000 people came out over the past three days, getting a firsthand look at how Native Americans and settlers lived before modern conveniences.
"To see what people had to do to live outside all the time if they were on the American frontier, back during those days. For those people that aren't familiar with it, it's just a matter of adaptation. It's a great way to learn American history," said Ben Kirkland.
People who participated in the festival tried to live as authentic as possible; cooking off a camp fire, eating on hand crafted pottery, and even sleeping in teepees.
