Expecting Mongols in Walmart

"During 10 days in June 2016, the SCA will transform the entire fairgrounds into a scene out of medieval Europe, complete with feasts, dancing, blacksmithing, jousting and archery competitions," writes Anthony Schoettle of the Indiana Business Journal about the Society for Creative Anachronism’s 50th anniversary celebration.

The celebration, led by event organizer and SCA member Mike Hobbs, will take place at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Hendricks County, Indiana with an expected local impact of over near US$3 million. “Hendricks County can expect to see lots of people during those 10 days in their grocery stores, restaurants and around town in their Middle Ages garb,” said Hobbs, with a laugh. “Don’t be surprised if you see some Mongols in Walmart.”
