The weather over the weekend may have been hot, but was still perfect for the 53rd annual Rendezvous at Fort de Chartres.

The annual event, which takes visitors back to the 1700s, featured a variety of shooting competitions, military drills, dancing, music, demonstrations, food and traders of 18th century style goods.
