BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Colonial music and demonstrations of historic crafts will be part of the Ethan Allen Heritage Celebration this coming weekend in Burlington.

The event takes place Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Ethan Allen Homestead Museum in Burlington from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Two fife and drum corps, the 40th Army Band's woodwind quintet and a choir will perform.

There will also be demonstrations in historical arts and crafts such as rope making and making fire from flint and steel.

The museum includes the historical home of Ethan Allen, the leader of the Green Mountain Boys, who made a name for himself by helping to take Fort Ticonderoga from the British in the early days of the Revolutionary War.

Admission to the Heritage Celebration is free.
