If you’re like me, you’re always looking for something different to do on summer weekends. I love the beach, museums, public gardens, food festivals, fun runs, et.al., but sometimes I’m in the mood for a good old Knight Fight. You know, Camelot, knights-in-armor, battles between good & evil, a chance to wear fancy dress and pointy hats?
We get our chance to cheer for the heroes and hiss at the villains at Royal Rabbit Vineyards Medieval Afternoon in Parkton, MD on Saturday, July 12,2014. The Count and Countess Gellene welcome everyone to enjoy a day of medieval hand combat, archery, music and fun.
The porta potty is in place. (Always an important consideration.) The lawn has been mowed. (Great) The poison ivy exterminated. (Double Great) A mister will be set up to cool off if anyone feels like they are getting over heated. (Knights-in-armor always make me hot!)
BRING CHAIRS. SUN SCREEN. SMALL PAVILIONS FOR SHADE.
Make new friends. Dress up and be part of the dream. Drink your favorite Royal Rabbit Wines, have a burger, drink some more wine. Win the arm wrestling contest. Cheer for your favorite knight fighter.
Lively contests of olde include:
The best medieval garb (costume)
The best tavern/drinking song (to be sung in the tasting room)
The best musician(s) – bring your guitar, lute, or dulcimer
Entrance to the Medieval Afternoon is free
The amusement starts at 12 PM and continues until closing at 5 PM.
And to complete your royal day, try Royal Rabbit wines in their tasting room. I know I always sing and dance better after a couple of glasses of wine. 😉
