Plimoth Plantation has planned the wedding of the century -- the 17th century, that is. Located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Plimoth Plantation is a re-enacted village set in 1623, complete with period actors, buildings, and demonstrations. On Saturday, August 14th Plimoth Plantation will step back in time to the year 1623 when the Colony's Governor William Bradford married Alice Carpenter Southworth, recently arrived from England on the ship Anne. Plimoth's renowned Native and Colonial interpreters will bring this historic event to life as Massasoit, Sachem of the Wampanoag, journeys to Plimoth to be a guest at this wonderful event from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

According to The Enterprise news, anyone who visits the plantation and Mayflower II bewtween Aug. 7 and 13 will receive a free return admission for the wedding. In addition, on Friday, Aug. 13, the plantation will hold a "A Pint With A Pilgrim" beer tasting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the English Village.
