Units interpreting an array of different periods will share their various stories and histories. Through the medium of a fashion show, the evolution of historical uniforms will be presented for public inspection.
During the day the units will line up for a grand parade around the village. Each group will also individually perform for review. Later, all the corps will participate in a "Jollification" (the historical equivalent of a large jam session.)
