Partying like its 1812..

1813 actually.. That's when two battles in the war of 1812 were fought in Sackets Harbor.

This weekend, people at the battlefield including reenactors from all around the country are celebrating the historical significance of the village, a celebration that's been growing since the weekend started.

Connie Barone, site manager at Sackets Harbor Battlefield said, "We've been doing this for 13 years. We have been reenactors who come back year after year. Although even this year, it's amazing we're adding in new reenactors.

The 13th annual War of 1812 Weekend continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. including a military demonstration.
