Much Ado About Sebastopol 2014 Travel back in time to the 1500s England, when Queen Elizabeth I ruled the kingdom and Shakespeare was at his peak of creative genius. Held in charmingly wooded Ives Park, this Renaissance Faire is a completely immersive experience. Participants in period garb, stroll through the fictitious village of Fenford, singing songs, playing music, and engaging in spirited conversations with the curious time travelers who have come to visit. Children can take part in games, crafts and workshops. Learn about falconry, try writing a letter with a quill, or solve mathematical problems using Roman numerals. Games include model trebuchets, Twilziwop (a pillow fight on a balance beam), Rat-a-pult (launching toy rats via catapult), and Rounders, a precursor to baseball or cricket. Food will be on hand from local Sebastopol purveyors, so be sure to bring your appetite. Sundries will also be for sale, including jewelry, pottery, quilts, puppets, and other gifts. Visitors to Fenford are welcome to come in their own Renaissance garb, but it's not required. Much Ado About Sebastopol benefits the enrichment programs at Brook Haven, Park Side and Analy High Schools. It is sponsored by the Sepastopol Educational Foundation and Guild of St. George.
