El Presidio San Agustin del Tucson

Hi fellow ambassadors. This is my first time blogging so we will see how it goes. It was great to visit El Presidio San Agustin to see a replica of Tucson's original Presidio and the history behind the walled fortress. I am including a few pictures to show the event.

The picture below shows the dress of the period:

The cannon was fired every hour on the hour in a demonstration of protecting the citizens of the Presidio:

Below is a demonstration of spinning cotton and wool into thread for weaving:

Attending events like this increases the pride of living in such a great city with all the diverse culture and history that we have. I am proud to be a part of the celebration!
