Whacks and wenches at Three Barons Renaissance Faire

Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism were on hand in early June for the 21st annual Three Barons Renaissance Fair in Anchorage, Alaska. Bill Roth of the Anchorage Daily News offers a photo album with highlights.

The SCA armored combatants joined Shakespearean actors, Middle Eastern dancers, jesters and wenches for the two-weekend event. Among the highlights of the slideshow is a photo of the Shakesperean theater where attendees are encouraged to throw real tomatoes at the feckless actors - and a photo of the cleanup of the aftermath.
