The Medieval Fair

A staple of Norman culture every year is the Medieval Fair, a traveling circus-like event that camps out in Reaves Park for a three-day weekend in April.

This year, my visit to this glorious place of turkey legs and overflowing boobage was brief. I just walked around, admiring and taking pictures, for a bit. It's kinda one of those "You only really need to see it once" scenarios.

The festival has one or two large stages where various acts perform. Today I saw some belly dancing and a jester juggling.

The best part of the whole thing though, by far, is the people watching.

I swear, the crazies come out of the woodwork for these sorts of events. It's like half the people in attendance just come to watch the other half of people in attendance. It's quite fascinating, really.

And the booths selling merchandise are kinda cool. Lots of variety, with everything from legitimately talented ceramic vases to sketchy plastic magic wands with streamers.

Something for everyone, I guess.

And naturally, the food there is all fair food -- only the most delicious/disgusting stuff in the world.

Love it!
