The 2012 Faire Theme -- 'Tis the Year 1579 and, more importantly, 'tis the 20th year anniversary of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. The town of Byllerica is all abuzz with news of the Queen's impending arrival and they are hard at work preparing for a grand celebration of the Queen's Jubilee. In addition, due to the resignation of Her Majesty's Jester from the position of Mayor of Byllerica, the citizens have decided to hold elections for a new Mayor. Already several outstanding candidates have stepped forward to claim the title including Mistress Paavec (the Spice Merchant) and Captain Romeo 'the' Red (the notorious Pirate who undoubtedly will be cheating his way to the top). The Mayoral Candidates will be wandering the village to meet (and possibly bribe) potential voters. They will also be participating in the Variety show that the town will be presenting to the Queen as their gift on this celebratory weekend.
