Let's have a feast!

April 18, 2006

Albany - Tuesday at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Albany, 6th graders from Deerfield-Windsor School took part in a Medieval festival. They feasted on cheese, fruit, and turkey legs, lit by candlelight and washed down with pints of warm gingerale.

Rena Divine says the feast was fun, but messy. She says, "It's very messy we have to eat it with our hands, mostly we just wipe it on our pants, we don't have any napkins so it's kind of hard."

Peggy Kinsaul says, "This is the culmination of our King Author study and we've been studying medieval times. It's just tradition at Deerfield that we have a medieval feast in the end and everyone gets to take part in it."

The Society for Creative Anachronism put on jousting displays and re-created the ambiance and practice of the Middle Ages for the students.
