Medieval Fairs and reenactment are all the rage here during the summer. I usually attend when there's one near me, 2 weeks ago there was a small one in Sintra and we had great fun watching a man play with fire. I should have taken some pictures but I forgot the camera, L. took some pictures but phone cameras are not the same. This year I'm even hoping we will manage to visit the big one in Santa Maria da Feira.
I'm not sure if this a complement of my love of medieval readings or if those are a complement to my love of medieval history but I really enjoy attending these fairs. The nice handycrafts and the good food also help making these outings something memorable.
Do you enjoy visiting these kind of events?
Not sure why they don't do it with other periods but so far it's always medieval. I certainly would love to see other periods recreated.
