The WinterFest Medieval Festival in Parramatta Park this weekend past, saw history come alive! Until attending this sort of festival over the last two seasons, I did not realise that so many people were into historic recreations. The field was alive with participants and onlookers, dressed to the hilt in the costume of the period.
M'Lords and Ladies, let us commence with the joust, where our valiant knights on their trusty steeds vie for the favour of the fair ladies. If you look carefully, you will realise that one of the horse-riders is a knightette!
I am in Ballina on the North Coast for the next few days. Tomorrow: Birds of Prey!
