Life as it was at America’s infancy was portrayed during the annual Colonial Market & Fair at George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate over the weekend.

Dozens of colonial-attired artisans demonstrated 18th-century crafts and sold traditional wares such as baskets, wood carvings, tin and ironwork, leather workings, weavings and furniture. Visitors to the fair watched Revolutionary War military drills and 18th-century entertainment including music, fire-eating, sword-swallowing, puppet and magic shows, plus hearty specialty food for sale onsite.
