Castlefest 2007

Yesterday Wonder, Ron and I went to Castlefest, a medieval/fantasy/pagan festival with lots of stands and great entertainment in the gardens of castle "De Keukenhof" in Lisse. Wonder and I had been there before, for Ron it was all new. He rarely accompagnies me to events like this, so I was glad to be able to share this with him. We met a lot of friends and acquaintances there, like the people we went to Luxemburg with, Gaialynn & Robyn (her daughter), neighbour Monique, etc. Ron and I wore the clothes we bought in Luxemburg: my blue dress and his black shirt.

The weather was great, sunny and warm. I´ve made several rounds to see all the booths and had a great time. I didn´t buy much though. Early when we arrived I had seen lovely wings, made of feathers from different birds. At the end of the day I bought the wing with pheasant feathers. On the big podium there were performances by Rapalje, Faun, The Mediaeval Babes and Omnia. At the end of the evening they were all performing together, that was great! During the last performance of Omnia the Wickerman (or in this case Wickerwoman) was burned. Read about the meaning of burning a wickerman here. I made a movie of it with my camera, but it's too big to upload to YouTube. Other movies: YouTube.
