Editor's Pick: 

Experience the Middle Ages on the Farmingdale Village Green. Enjoy sword fighting, dancing, family-oriented crafts and hands-on demonstrations. 

The fighters and fencers will show off their prowess and their splendid armor (internal rules forbid audience participation in the fighting, but they can answer questions). Fighters choose a “consort for the day” and token prizes will be awarded to both the winners. Each child chosen will get a flower in recognition of this honor and the winner of each tourney gets a rose to present to his/her "consort". Dancers will display their footwork to Medieval music and teach Medieval dances. Artisans of all sorts will both display their work and give children and their parents, hands-on time to explore their crafts. See how Medieval spinners prepared their wool & their thread.
