Medieval Mayhem and Fun
Its officially over. The season of the corset, the sword and the bestial cries of ME LORD!
Scarborough Fair has come and gone. But here were some of the highlights:
As always Sholo the Nubian greeted the merry fair comers in his stoic way near the entrance. Once we arrived, properly dressed in our pirate get up of course, his belt was already sporting several dollar bills from young ladies eager for a photo with the Fair fixture.
Twiggy, the adorable fairy, fluttered and played with children and adults alike; her wings glittering in the abnormally cool summer sun.
Free roasted pecans and almonds abounded and all the garb was top tier.
For anyone looking to get their medieval drink on, Scarby opened on liqueur venue this year. However it was not partaken of since the hunt for Mead took presidency. Nothing like sipping mead in garb at the Fair!
The King’s and Queen’s presence was better felt this year as they and a royal entourage Vincent Chase would envy toured the events of the day. Or maybe it was simple because he was stocking our pretty group…
The whip demonstration was a real treat. Lively acts and funny banter coupled with the rhythmic snap of whips. The show was ended with lighting a whip on fire. The first snap created a fire ball that had the kids squealing with delight.
The Tinker Gnome is always a great attraction for the young and old alike. His jokes span the age group, keeping just right of inappropriate. It always seems to successfully go over the kidos heads why mom and dad are laughing. His Gnome contraption, with its smoky bubbles and whirling representations of the solar system is really something to behold. His shop and helper elves was a fun experience and the newly developed fairy area was quite charming.
The annual Mead Hunt was had, “Me Lord” was over used, a Dragon Wrist Companion was bought and leather armor was tried on. Coupled with playing mancala with a Pirate, a lady and a Duchess, Scarborough was marvelous medieval merriment.
Until next year ladies, gents, fairies and trolls.
