This year's Midsummer Faire was the Equestrian Championships for their Royal Majesties as well as for the Barony of Stonemarche.

Vivat! to Baron Duncan Kerr and his quick and trusty steed "Merlin" as the King's Champion.

Vivat! to Duke Randall of the Dark and the mare "Gypsy Rose" as the Queen's Champion.

Vivat! to Lord Michael de Calais and the Stonemarche Baronial Horse, "Stacato", as Stonemarche's Baronial Champion.

As part of the festivities, a special presentation to His Majesty, Kelson, of ''Monkeys jousting on minis''.

A wish of his... He was pleasantly surprised and it was very entertaining.

 

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's off to war we go!
