Lake Havasu Goes Medieval!

The London Bridge Renaissance Faire celebrated its third year at the SARA Park Rodeo Grounds this weekend. The Faire, which features street and stage performers in period costumes, along with fencing, jugglers, musicians and even belly dancers, aims to bring the Medieval Times to life. Along with the performers, the Armored Combat League, which holds free-style combat between fighters clad in medieval armor, held their U.S. Nationals in the Faire’s arena.

The weekend-long event was kick started on Thursday, with a Royal Banquet held at the London Bridge Resort Convention Center. The Banquet benefited the Lake Havasu Museum of History.
