Fun and a history lesson in North Carolina

Attendees of Pamlico Community College's second annual renaissance fair in Grantsboro, North Carolina come for a number of reasons: the fun, the music and the history. This year's fair was visited by Charles Hall of the Sun Journal. (photos)

“We come to enjoy the music and the history,” said Chris Patrick of Arapahoe, who came with his wife Joyce and step-daughter Gwynn.  “My step-daughter is all about history,” he said of the 17-year-old. “This is good for the community. It is something good for the kids to do, instead of staying in their rooms on the computer.”

The fair featured costumed performers, including pirates, and musicians such as the Craven Consort.
