ROEBUCK, S.C. (AP) - More than 200 re-enactors, artisans and storytellers are on hand at Walnut Grove Plantation in Spartanburg County this weekend for the annual “Festifall” celebration at the 18th Century historic site.

Visitors will be able to experience what life was like in a colonial village with demonstrations of music, dancing, cooking, weaving, woodworking, candle making and other activities.

The two-day event opens Saturday and both days features re-enactments of the 1780 raid on the plantation by troops under William Cunningham, a loyalist partisan during the Revolutionary War.

The event is part of Relive Our Revolution Week. It is presented by the Spartanburg County Historical Association along with the Cowpens and Kings Mountain national historic sites, the Overmountain Victory Trail and the City of Gaffney.
