September 18, 2010 Waterloo, Ontario became a gathering place for knights and ladies. The Royal Medieval Faire attracted thousands of patrons to Waterloo Park who flocked to see the drama unfold between king, queen, knights, squires and even fairies and pirates. Pitched battles took place in a central ring while games and workshops were available for visitors young and old. Vendors sold everything from popcorn to turkey legs and from swords to comic strips. And I tell you, those comic strips were some fantastic.
My brother, Neal, and I were there in the PostScript tent where we sold our wares. We had a chance to visit with fans that met us last year, some who saw us at the Guelph Fairy Fest and some who had no idea what to expect. We were in a high traffic area between the Privy and the Waterloo Public Library Reading Tent. Except for a light drizzle right at the end, the forecasted rain even held off.
As always, we ran a caption contest. Jeff Blakeney submitted the above caption. His caption is not only witty, but it takes an unexpected angle. Congratulations, Jeff. He won the original line art for the image along with a print with your caption filled in.
Jennifer Lynn D’Hondt won our colouring contest. Congratulations, Jennifer! She won a family pass for the Waterloo Central Railroad.
All things considered, we had a good day. Find more photos from the Royal Medieval Faire on PostScript’s Fan Page.
Stay funny, my friend.
