Sylvan Glen draws crowds in West Virginia park

“It’s one of the few hobbies where we try to portray honor, chivalry, kindness and patience,” said Nancy Smith of the recent Ren Faire at the Poor house Farm Park in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Jillian E. Kesner of the Journal has the story.

The 11th annual Ren Faire was open to the public, and although attendance was down this year, participants gave their all. “It’s very much a game,” said Smith. “It’s kind of like adult play, although children also participate. It’s a game mentality.”
