The Faire is quite large, and consists of a whole bunch of booths and tents selling midieval merchandise and equipment as well as several stages and places for events and shows. Costumed Faire-goers roam the event talking in british accents which were sometimes pretty poorly done, but I guess you've got to give them credit for trying. Lots of regular uncostumed folk attend the Faire as well, to browse through the booths and see the shows. There are stalls selling food and such as well. In short, it's many of the things you would find at a county fair, but with the added medievalness. It was a great time and I made a few purchases myself which I hope to wear at the next fair in October. I picked up a pair of pants, a shirt, some sandles and a leather belt pouch. Once pictures of this year's Faire are up on their website I'll snag a few and put them up here.

Spindrop through the rushing. And so down.
Through white space, until you hit the ground.
Landing site ringing hollow. And so empty.
Dazed on the ground, after the rushing down.
Tall rise, stone spires follow. And so after.
You walk out west, landing site behind.
Indigo skies suspend fireflies. And so glow.
Pulsing white light, ascent of the shimmer.
Slipby and through the soft night, then drink
Starlight is liquid ink, your insides will blink
Green hillside sighs, his center is missing
Tread lightly his head, he has already bled
Water will flow, and so down, seafoam grey
Moon face gleaming, his daughter is dreaming
Swim through, current pull and so undertow
Drown down, world is blue and so are you
