This past weekend was the 17th Annual Primitive Camp Meeting and Rendezvous at the Red River Meeting House in south Logan County. The annual event has the feel of a big family reunion, according to event organizer Tom Ruley.
The rendezvous kicked off Friday, Oct. 13 and ran through Sunday. With people dressed in period clothing, primitive camp sites and demonstrations of life in the 1800s, the annual event lets guests take a look at what life was like when the Second Great Awakening occurred at Red River around 200 years ago.
Historic reenactors from around the country come to camp out and take part in the event. Many set up primitive camp sites, but Ruley said anyone was welcome to come and camp.
