What was going on Sun, 6/10 at Camp Richardson???

I went by there on the way to Eagle Lake and people were everywhere and many were dressed in what appeared to be 14th or 15th Century costumes. I'd appreciate any insight or link and what they celebrate or believe.

Hmm. A gentleman I know here was going to Camp Richardson this week with friends & family-- 120 something people. If he's back on Monday I'll ask him if they dressed up.

It was the Valhalla Renaissance Faire. It's two weekends, usually the 1st and 2nd weekends of the month of June. People are encouraged (though not required) to dress in the garb of the 16th century. There are many liberties taken with costumes, to be sure! The 1st weekend is geared toward families, and the 2nd weekend, toward pirates and barbarians. They have vendors who sell costume clothing, accessories, and weaponry, as well as jewelry, gifts, and musical recordings of period instruments. There are performers who wander the fair, as well as stage performances. Also, there is contemporary food for sale, and a jousting tournament and exhibits of period fighting. Their website is www.valhallafaire.com for more information. Gate proceeds go to local charity and also canned goods that attendees bring in.
