Feast of Fools, Venetian Nights

Let the merriment and splendors of a night in Venice during Carnival lure you to the fair Barony of Dragonsspine and the College of Tygre's Keep.

Their Excellencies, Lothar and Lydia, will choose a Best Venetian Costume and there will be a Laurels' Choice for the Best Venetian Mask. The children will have fun with a 'decorate your own mask' activity.

We will have fighting and lots of it, both armored and rapier. There will also be a Queen of Hearts Croquet Tournament and period gaming for non-combatants.

During feast there will be a bawdy bardic (PG please, but with lots of innuendo). Please contact Lady Cecilia if you would like to entertain.

As always, following a wonderful feast, is the Court of Misrule with the traditional costume pun contest, a great previous example would be a lady in a Tudor dress carrying a bowling ball in her arm with a wig on it, to choose the next King and Queen of Misrule. Following the Foolish Court will be court dancing and lively games, including Caer Galen Musical Chairs.
