The Burning of Kingston is a weekend long commemoration where actual historical events are reenacted at different locations throughout Kingston. The weekend also includes a Colonial Grand Ball, event exhibits, a cemetery ghost tour, Redcoat and Militia camp tours and demonstrations, and a whole lot more. And it's happening this weekend!

It kicks off this afternoon at 5:30 with the Story of the Burning of Kingston at The Senate House, with events throughout the evening. Tomorrow, there will be events and reenactments all day starting at 10 am. And the day's festivities wrap up with the Colonial Grand Ball. The fun continues on Sunday from 9 am - 12:30 pm. All this, plus the restaurants, clubs, and shops of Kingston.
