Participate in demonstrations of armored fighting, rapier fighting, thrown weapons, dancing, leatherworking, blacksmithing, games, crafts, arts and sciences. Children can make their own shield and get their faces painted. We hope to have a couple of food trucks. Booths will be selling period-inspired merchandise. That evening, the MPP will present a free performance of William Shakespeare's "Troilus and Cressida". Blankets, chairs, sunscreen and cash are recommended.
