RENSSELAER — A handful of children gathered at the riverfront Sunday to play a variety of games — but not baseball, or soccer, or even catch. They were playing the likes of hoop & spear, ring & pin and an involved match of shinny.
Sunday’s program is a weekly one that will run through the end of October, focusing on Native American history. It is put on by Fort Crailo, a historical organization based at the former home of the Van Rensselaer family. That old brick structure is directly across Broadway from the riverfront site where the events are held.
