The Fifth Annual Fort Macaulay Historic Interpretation Event will take place at Macaulay Point Park.  The buildings and gun emplacements at the historic site will all be numbered and indexed to a handout with brief historical references to each. Guided tours will take place at 10:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Tours are led by local historian, Jack Bates. 

The event will also feature members of the Victoria-Esquimalt Military Re-enactors Association with their encampment, the Esquimalt Archives, Toad Hollow Photography and others. The Esquimalt Lions will provide a cash-only BBQ, serving up their famous hamburgers and hot dogs with proceeds going back into the community.
