Back to the Middle Ages

A Medieval Fair of fighting knights, craft demonstrations and Renaissance musicians transported visitors several hundred years back in time. Caponi Art Park hosted the Sunday afternoon event.

  2. That's always fun. I lost in a wrestling game against one of the Vikings at a fair in Haninge.

  3. The medieval theme seems to be popular in so many countries, they have these here to and they're so much fun to watch.

  6. The Middle Ages were fascinating but barbarous. Thank God we're living in the 21st century to enjoy mediaeval pageants. I wish you a fascinating week.
