SCA-organized ren faire raises money for charity

Children were the real winners at the recent Ocean Springs (Mississippi) Renaissance Faire, which featured many kid-friendly activities. Brad Crocker of the Mississippi Press has the story.

The faire, sponsored by St. Paul's Episcopal Church and organized by the Gulf Coast chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, took place in conjunction with the city's May Fest. Crowds gathered to eat and listen to music, while just up the street, knights in armor and medieval craftsmen worked their magic.

From the article:

"Alan Clampett of Gautier, who serves as Morgan of Osprey, called the festival 'a very relaxing' event filled with family-oriented fun and educational opportunities related to the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods."
