You may be skeptical about medieval fairs being the coolest thing in the world, but the 90,000 people that show up each year for the Medieval Festival don't think so. There will be jesters, jugglers, era-specific clothing, dancing, sword fighting, maidens. Still not sold? At the end of the afternoon, there will be a four-way joust by knights on horseback. Real horses. Fake knights. The real possibility of awesomeness.
