Rex, I guess I didn't know the half of it with my cousin. Just received this from her when I emailed her about this thread and told her what you'd been up to at the Fort:
I was doing the same sort of thing as Rex weekend before last at Fort Garland, only I was speaking and playing my flute instead of singing and playing banjo---but wish I could. There were Civil War reenactors, story tellers, Las Posadas, etc. I loved it! Three of my books are set in part at Bent's Fort. SOARING EAGLE ends there and WHITE GRIZZLY starts there. (Hum. I guess you haven't seen WHITE GRIZZLY yet. It came out in September.) LITTLE FOX is set mostly there.
Sounds like Aguilar is a fun place, too!
