River of Time is back in Bay City’s Veterans Memorial Park this weekend.

Event consultant Jan Rau says activities got off to an excellent start with Education Day Friday featuring some 2,000 area students from places  like Vassar, Bay City and Bangor Township. Rau added hours are 10 to 10  Saturday and 10 to Three Sunday.

You can look for your favorite historical figures  like President Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin, watch skirmishes from  the Civil War and other eras and purchase unique gifts for friends and family.

Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
