this comes to town once a year. you can go in costume or just every day clothes. i really did not care for it but everyone else just loved it. there are people walking all over in costume who work the grounds and just talk to you. then there are the jousting matches they put on and various other matches for you to watch. there are also plenty of shops with silver and other trinkets. all kinds of food are available. the traffic to get there is pretty bad though.
