Cannons on Q (Video)

 

Cannons on Q

BIG BANGS WERE HEARD NEAR BEST VALLEY Saturday morning as two replicas Civil War cannons were fired at targets on the Bartz Farm along County Road Q north of Downing. The cannons are called “Parrot Guns,” which shoot a ten-pound shell up to two miles. In the above photo one of the cannons is firing and a burst of red fire can be seen exiting the end of the barrel.
