Photo Recap of the Ft. Tryon Medieval Festival

Entrance to the Medieval Festival!

Greetings! Here are some photos from today's highly successful Medieval Festival in Ft. Tryon Park. It was an absolutely beautiful day out, perfect for the day's festivities.

Just inside the park, we were treated to a cheeky performance in verse.

Festival-goers in costume!

Teaching the "Warrior Handshake"

...and the adult version.


There were many examples of crafts being demonstrated at the Festival, like this loom...

...and pottery.

Mmmm. Turkey legs.

A performance of Chaucer's "The Pardoner's Tale" by UP Theater Company.

The ironsmith.

Neighborhood resident and fair maid Liz Ritter.

Photos from the duel between Robin Hood and Sheriff Nottingham....

Kids playing at the foot of the "castle." (Or, The Cloisters)

The George Washington Bridge as the rain clouds threaten to roll in,
making for a dramatic final image!
