June 23-24 is the 2012 Ye Merrie Greenwood Players renaissance fair in Howard Amon Park.
Last night at the park with my kids I came across two gentlemen fighting each other in full armor. I thought they were practicing for the fair, but it turns out they are with an entirely different society.
They said the Ye Merrie Greenwood Players is truly focused on the renaissance, and call themselves “Players” because they emphasize the theatrical. The two gentlemen in the park on Wednesday were with The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).
