It is exciting to see a group of cavalry members equipped with sabers and revolvers thunder across a field firsthand. Two live cavalry drill demonstrations will be conducted at High Bridge Trail State Park on Sunday, April 3, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The location of this program will be at the grassy overflow parking area along Camp Paradise Road just east of the parking loop. A camp will be set up in the same area where visitors can interact with the living-history Union troopers between demonstrations.

The program is free, but parking fees do apply. Parking access to this event is located at 1466 Camp Paradise Road, Rice.
