From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., park visitors will be transported more than 200 years into the past as Mission Espiritu Santo comes to life once again as the busy mission village it was so long ago.
Sights and sounds of Spanish Colonial, Tejano and Native American life from the 1700s and early 1800s will fill the mission compound, and 21st century visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at many of the activities to be seen.
Craftspeople such as blacksmiths, leatherworkers, potters, flintknappers, black powder marksmen and vaqueros busy their day-to-day work will happily stop to pass the time of day with newcomers to the Village of Mission Espiritu Santo.
Everyone is also invited to visit the Presidio La Bahia where visitors will be able to visit an encampment of 1830s Texians busily readying themselves for potential conflict with Mexican forces.
Goliad State Park and the Presidio La Bahia are located immediately south of Goliad on Highway 183. Admission to special activities at Goliad State Park is $5 per adult, with children 12 and under free. Regular admission fees apply at the Presidio La Bahia.
Please call Goliad State Park at 361-645-3405 or Presidio La Bahia at 361-645-3752 for more information.
