Eskalya Cherry Blossom Festival

Saturday March 3rd, 2018
Anchorage, Alaska

As winter rushes away and spring comes forth with a symphony off color... blah, blah, blah. Cast off the shackles of propriety and answer the call of mischief, mayhem, merry making and madcap frivolity. Join in the silliness and fun that is March Madness. There will be a fool’s tourney for both heavy and rapier and of course all fighters are expected to show an appropriate level of foolishness in the lists.

• Heavy tourney — first will be a fools crested joust (on stick horse of course), the second part will be the crested tourney (without horses). As part of this there will be a competition for Best War Horse and one for the Best Fool’s Crest; also Most Outrageous Death.
• Rapier — will include a Fool’s Crested Tourney, also with a competition for Best Fool’s Crest/Hat and Most Outrageous Death and Fanciest Kill.
• A third competition will be held to determine the champion of the day — a Japanese tourney of Ro-Sham-Bo (rock, paper, scissors).

Other activities:
Bardic — Best foolish performance, Quick the Bard (combat musical chairs), Stomp the duck, A Castle toss for the smalls, There will be another kids activity, Arts and Science: Best Silly Hat
