Medieval Festival

Yesterday we spent the day at Upper Canada Village and Seaway Valley Parks first annual Medieval Festival. It was quite interesting with Vikings holding sword fighting demonstrations; various archers doing archery demonstrations; a talk on Falconry in history and a Raptor show by the Canadian Raptor Conservatory; horseback games; and most impressive a joust competition with members from Canada and the USA. Rather than talk about it I'll just show the pictures PeterC took.

The Joust. Yes, those are lance pieces flying through the air.































The Vikings and Archers.










The Royal Court. A Falconer with his Kestral.










The Horseback games.
