New life at Olde English Faire

The Olde English Faire in Edwards, Illinois has had its challenges, but the faire, at its new site, Wildlife Prairie State Park, was a success, especially with the kids. Michael Boren of the Peoria Journal Star has the story. (photos)

Members of the local chapter of the SCA showcased their artisan and fighting skills at the faire, with two of their own, Jane and Mike Crowley, serving as king and queen. “When you put on Medieval clothing, (a man) feels more chivalrous,” Jane said, “and a woman feels more like a lady.”
