I also went to the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Faire on Sunday. I had a blast (and no I did not dress up in period costume). I learned about weapons and got to throw stars, knives, and axes.
I also learned how to hold a pike and run thru a combat drill with it!
There was a good music group called 3 Pints Gone which we listened to for a bit. Some of their songs are hilarious! We also saw a joust, though no one actually fell off a horse, it was more like a skill test of what these guys could do on the horse with the poles catching different things.
I also ate my 1st turkey leg, which will be my last turkey leg - yuck! All in all, it was a great day and was worth the 100 mile round trip to get there!
