Ye Olden Times

ESCONDIDO – Queens, knights, lords and ladies roam the grounds of Felicita Park for the annual Escondido Renaissance Faire on Saturday.

Visitors dressed in their finest threads exchanged “Good Morrows,” and “Fare thee wells,” with each other during the two day event on May 3 and May 4 put on by Gold Coast Festivals.

Another Renaissance Faire is scheduled for two weekends in the fall beginning Sept. 20.

Visitors have the chance to learn some medieval fighting skills at the Renaissance Faire. Photo by Tony Cagala“Lord Clover” challenges his might in a club holding contest.
