The Swordsmen jokingly offered him the rock that hurt him, then threw it away, high in the air behind them, where it boomaranged off the backdrop and hit the same kid on his way back to his seat!
We also spent more time in the children's area where Du-Jay and Sagezilla mixed many potions with a witch. She declared their requests to be unique and the most creative of the run of the fest. The crowning glory was a mixed transforming potion that would alter the shape of the drinker to anything, by request.
Both kids made sock puppets. Then we enjoyed the show "The Devil and the Baker's Wife" on the kids stage.
The kids even got knighted by the Queen of England, herself. Sir Du-Jay makes a fine knight, but Lady Sagezilla's still more pirate than lady despite the pedigree.
Both kids had a chance to shoot 12 arrows each at the archery range. They needed to hone their defensive skills in case some of the trolls, monsters and hairy beasties turned out to be real. People watching was at a premium.
We even spotted Green Man and Madame Butterfly who gave the kids a little turtle and an irridescent metal butterfly pin.
We were sad to see the faire end. As the day drew to a close, everyone joined in a drum circle dance where we heard strains of "........ na na na na, hey, hey, goodbye. Huzzah! Till next year.
