I've never been to the MD faire, but I've heard it is absolutely stunning, one of the very best. I can't wait to see their joust. Hopefully I'll pick up some ideas or inspiration.
Perhaps best of all is that my choosing to go to MD means I will NOT be performing at the Fort Tryon Park Medieval Festival. No slippery-grassed, tiny joust field for me! After the season I've had, I'm rather happy abou that, even though it is easy money (and with my joust pay, pretty good money at that).
Maryland! Crab Cakes! Pirate Songs! Sheroes meet! YAY!
