During this event a tiny part in Wellington slips back to the medieval era to enjoy the thrill of the joust. But there’s plenty of other events, archery, medieval battles, and something for everyone. But if you do go, there are a few pointers, after all it was dangerous back then, so –
1) Watch out for dragons!
2) Watch out for horses 🙂 Actually most of the watching out is just so you don’t miss how gorgeous they are, so enjoy, but stay back from the ropes and leave some of these highly strung horses to the experts, especially when they’re about to joust.
3) Watch out young warriors for opportunities to try your hand at bow and arrow and other activities.
4) Go have fun, and talk to the re-enactors and enjoy something that you would struggle to see anywhere else in the world. 🙂 And it’s just down the road in Upper Hutt.
This event it so much fun, we’d like to thank all those who put it on every two years.
so thank you,
A.J. Ponder and Ike
PS So if you get a chance, grab some friends and go!
