Like I mentioned on Character Fun Day Sunday, this past weekend was our community’s 37th Annual Medieval Fair. Our family has traveled from all over the state since the first fair was held at the University of Oklahoma’s South Oval. In fact, my great aunt sold frybread at the first few fairs. The fair grew then moved to the Duck Pond where it was held for more than two decades and I attended my first Medieval Fair. It was moved to its current site at Reaves Park in 2003. I really miss the days at the Duck Pond, but it continues to be a fun and free event for the whole family, and we attend every year.
The fair is a great event for people watching. Not only do the vendors dress up in period clothing, but so do many of the fair-goers. And you may even run into a few surprise guests along the way…
There are also demonstrations, musicians, story tellers and more!
It wouldn’t be a fair without (kind of overpriced) activities for the kiddos…
And, of course, there are lots of vendors to peruse at the fair. Offering everything from swords to costumes to baby dragons, there’s something for everyone.
And just for fun, some shots of the kiddos having a blast!
I just barely scratched the surface of the Medieval Fair (I didn’t even go into all the crazy food options), so the next time you’re visiting the Sooner state in early April, check out the fair!!
