The English corsair, Sir Francis Drake, and his raiders return to St. Augustine for an authentic re-creation of the 1586 sack of the city. Join Drake and his raiders on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for the 16th century-style military encampment at the Fountain of Youth Park; regular park admission applies. There will be drills, demonstrations and living history interpretations. The reenactment of the sacking and burning of the town will commence on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. in the old city, beginning at the City Gate on Orange Avenue and ending in the Plaza de la Constitución.
