One of the highlights of spring is the annual "Les Pays de Illynois Colonial Trade Faire" which is held at the Fort de Chartres State Historic Site. It recreates the activities of the mid-1700s in period attire and includes musket target shooting, "The Good Wife" competition among the ladies and "Colonial Games and Sauvage Stickball" and is held the first weekend of April.
