Williamsburg Fife and Drum At Sundown

A daily tradition at Colonial Williamsburg is the fife and drum precession near sundown. The parade starts on the eastern end of the Duke of Gloucester street and marches to the Palace Green. With no amplification from their instrument but their own breath or drum beat the parade commands attention from all visitors to America's largest living history museum. Think history is boring? Think again. Treat yourself to what colonial life was like during the 18th century by visiting Colonial Williamsburg. You'll also discover where scenes from the HBO miniseries, John Adams were filmed in 2007. Know that.
