This weekend I was able to attend the Riverdale Kiwanis Medieval Faire held annually at Lakes Park in Fort Myers, Florida.
What a wonderful fun event for the entire family. Lots of fun shows to watch that will keep even your littlest trolls engaged. From a live chess match to the traditional jousting and minstrel shows.
One of my all time favorites is the Barely Balanced troupe. These three friends will make even the most cold hearted pirate laugh. With Large (Jimmy) Medium (Cameron) and Small (Margret) performing feats of strength, agility and balance. If you can stay late make sure you check out their fire show.
Next I must get my Craic fix. This high energy Celtic ensemble drums, pipes and fiddles your cares away. Another must see show.
Another fun show worthy of mention is the Washer Women, the best dirty, clean fun you can have.
The Faire will be happening once again this coming weekend January 18 & 19, 2014. Get there early and plan to stay late, lots of great food, (including those smoked turkey legs), grog, including beer, wine & mead, vendors who sell every type of medieval garb and shiny objects possible and a lot more shows and games and Medieval rides for all ages.
