A reenactment of the 1781 Raid on Middlesex Meetinghouse, an 18th-century battle skirmish, children’s musket drills, Colonial cooking and artisan demonstrations will be part of Darien’s Heritage Day, an all-day family event on Saturday, Oct. 23. — an announcement from the Darien 200 Bicentennial Committee
The event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at three local historical landmarks and will feature members of The Fifth Connecticut Regiment and the 15th Regiment of Foot. “We are thrilled to bring this hands-on historical experience to Darien,” said Karen Boccadoro, a Darien resident who is a member of the Fifth’s board. Boccadoro has been a reenactor for over 15 years along with her husband, Carl.
