Fencers brave the mud at library ren faire

Young observers called for blood recently during a rapier demonstration at the Mancos Renaissance Faire, a two-day affair sponsored by the Mancos Public Library and featuring members of the local SCA group. Katie Burford of the Durango (Colorado) Herald had the story.

The event included "event belly dancing, acrobatics, juggling, musical performances and local craft makers" as well as rapier combat in a mud pit.
