Renaissance Faire - part 4

Watching the jousting was the most fun part of the faire, so I have saved the best for last. We saw two jousting shows, the first a prelude to the second. Before that, at the same arena, we saw a falconry demonstration. The first two photos show the falconer's helper bringing the birds around for the audience to see. I tried taking a photo of the falconer in action but at that moment the bird flew in front of his face!

Photos of the jousting:
Our champion for the first show. 
Alas, he was not the winner.

This lady was the emcee for the jousting events.

Our champion prepares for battle.

Our champion who was declared "Champion of
Champions" and winner of the joust to the death.

Looks good. Was this over a day or several days? Did you have far to see it?
