THE MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL
The Medieval Festival brings to life the customs and spirit of the Middle Ages. Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market town decorated with bright banners and processional flags. Performers, guests and festival goers dress in medieval costume. Visitors are greeted by authentic medieval music, dance, magic, and minstrels, as well as jugglers and jesters. The afternoon is concluded with a thrilling joust between four knights on horseback. Costumed vendors will be on hand to demonstrate and sell a wide variety of medieval crafts as well as food and drink. The festival is free -- there are no charges for admission or entertainment. Donations at the wishing wells are welcome.
The festival is held in the area surrounding the world famous Cloisters, a magnificent museum of medieval art located in Fort Tryon Park near the northern end of Manhattan Island. The park offers vistas of the Hudson River and the picturesque Palisades: a setting reminiscent of Europe eight centuries ago.

The weather has been kind of Wonki lately and the weather bureau is reporting afternoon showers. The meetup is still on for those coming but I'd advise caution for your equipment. If it starts to rain we will have to break up the meet early or cancel it if it starts to rain in the morning.
I will let you know either way
