Medieval Faire

A couple of weeks ago, we took the kids to the annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire. They absolutely loved it! We started out at the witches tent where they had bubbles to blow and magic tricks they preformed.
Then the kids got to meet the King and Queen of the fair. They actually remembered Link from last year.

The King asked if he wanted to be a knight in his service. Link said yes and as you can see he even dressed the part. He wore his knight costume from Halloween.
Lincoln knelt down and the King knighted him Sir Lincoln!

Not only was he now Sir Lincoln, but shortly thereafter he got to ride an actual elephant!!

Becca got her turn on the ponies. I want you to notice how my hand is on her leg in this and the next picture, making sure she is steady and doesn't fall.

Not long into the ride however and she made me take my hand away wanting to do it all by herself!

The great event of the day was the jousting match by the knights. Here is the emcee, a Scotsman, announcing our heroes.
Our knight won the tournament! If we end up staying here, we are definitely making this a yearly affair!
