Jousting - Two knights would gallop across the playing field at each other. They carried long, blunt poles and shields. The objective was to knock the other person out of his saddle. Team play was conducted with fierce mock combat between two bands of fighters. They fought with wooden or blunted weapons so as to reduce the risk of getting hurt. However, this was often not the case. Many people did get hurt or even died by accident. (Oh, but NOT at this festival - they just broke the other knight's lance.)
** A series from Scarborough Fair -
The 31st annual Scarborough Renaissance Festival was a trip through a 16th century Village that celebrated the majesty of the days of King Henry the VIII’s England, with entertainment, crafts, artisans, and food you could not find anywhere else in North Texas.
