Norman residents, students enjoy annual Medieval Fair over weekend

The annual Medieval Fair took place this weekend, bringing thousands of Norman residents out to Reaves Park.

While most people milled around the fair shopping and throwing axes at a wall, local actors and actresses were in full performance-mode to help bring the medieval times to life.

The royal court is a fair staple. They spend their days parading through the park, holding court, dancing and providing extra entertainment aside from the games and shops.

OU alumnus Cody Clark, who played King Edward III in this year’s royal court, said the royal court of the Medieval Fair is the structure that holds the fair together.

The parades and ceremonies are not as dominant in the fair as the vendors and games, but they bind everything together to create the second largest, weekend festivity in Oklahoma, Clark said.
