It was family day, so admission was cheap (Grandparents and all kids in your family were free), but once inside the gates, EVERYTHING cost extra money. It was worth it though and the money for a few of the activities went to support the Red Cross. I think the boys learned a lot about life in 16th Century England too!
This Knight greeted us at the entrance. He told Preston not to worry, he hadn't dropped that huge thing in his hand in the last five minutes!
Liam and I rode a camel. Liam LOVES riding animals! (Not the most flattering angle for a photo.)
Garrett was scary good throwing those stars. Check out the video below where he was bestowed with Honorary Knighthood.
Everyone's favorite was the Jousting competition.
These are hand cranked rides. The boys were all amazed that the rides were so much fun -- without using any electricity!
Fire-eating guy was good, but his humor was rated "R" so we didn't stay for his entire show.

Josh's wild ride!
(The ride operator had no sympathy for his screams for help.)
