|Due to popular demand, the demo at Marian Mohr Library in Johnston RI has turned into a full 2-day event with all the perks that come with it. What's even more special is the public is still invited to come and join the fun. The faire will now be held in Johnston War Memorial Park just down the street from the library. There will be fun for all, including fighting, games, music, performance and best of all showing off for the mundanes.|
Combat: There will be armored, rapier and youth combat to be had. The first annual Lord Greene Memorial Tournament will decide the next baronial champion in armored combat and rapier combat. Foreign fighters are welcome to compete for the titles. If won the champions must swear allegiance to Baron Eloi Abelard in the event of war. The public will be an active audience for all the fighting activities so fight well, honorably and add some good showmanship.
Other Activities: There will be a throwing weapons competition, dancing, children's games and crafts, A&S demonstrations, merchants and live performances from roving minstrels and wondering swordsmen from far away lands. Please joins us in this new experiment of open revelry.
Special thanks to the Friends of Marian Mohr Library and the Town of Johnston.
