Society for Creative Anachronism hosting Medieval world, Winter Wonders, at Lake Bistineau State Park on Sat, Feb 9, 9:30 am to 7:30 pm
Activities include medieval war combat and archery as well as Arts and Sciences displays during the day. "At 7 o’clock a Medieval Banquet will be held and I will be dancing at the banquet," says Copeland.
The Shire of Ardanroe site explains events, fees, schedule and exact location. There is also a murder mystery for the entertainment of all: "It is the 12th Century. The little town of Ardanroe has opened its gates for the Winter Faire before the Lenten season starts. All are welcome to compete for prizes and favors from this secluded town on the Welsh border. But wait! Not all is as it would appear. The Miller's wife has been found in the river wheel that powers the mill. Why was she killed? Help the wives of the mayor, the butcher, the baker, and the sheriff solve the mystery and catch the killer. Learn the clues revealed in classes, contests, tourneys, and the 'townspeople' working the event."
