I forgot that last Wedsnday I mentioned I was going to the festival. It was a lot of fun. The jousting as always was the best, followed neck and neck with the food. It was fun, but I think it would be more fun if I was in costume. Plus this one was not as interactive as other festivals I have been to.
Other festivals have had a lot more "characters". People who walked around and interacted with you. I had maybe 3 people speak to me in the Old English. But for the most part I enjoyed the atmosphere and the beef stew in a bread bowl. But next time I am defintely going in costume!
