HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS YEAR'S STORY:
The NJ Medieval & Fantasy Festivals are host to the ongoing story of The Paladin Knight, a Medieval Fantasy Hero. It is about courage, loyalty, determination, good versus evil and...well...having fun and enjoying life to the fullest!
This year, the Festival was held in Perdonia (Waterloo Concert Field) known for it skilled jousters, variety of merchants, entertainment and lush land.
Anton the Great, Count of Perdonia, offered The Paladin Knight the Quartz Stone of Truth to use on the evil Baron so that the whereabouts of the Five Stones of Life may be discovered. (Several years before, The Baron had stolen them from the Village of Five Stones, pillaging and killing the peasant folk on his quest for power.)
Once the location of the stones are revealed, The Baron will be sent into exile and Perdonia's mightiest warrior, selected from a Jousting Tournament, will venture out on a Quest with The Paladin Knight to retrieve the stones.
Two Jousting Tournaments were held. The first was of skill, the second was of combat. The winner will accepted the honor of going on a Quest with The Paladin to recover the Five Stones of Life.
But things got a bit crazy! An abnormal and mysterious storm pounded and drenched the Festival on Saturday - almost as if to prevent The Baron from being interrogated! However, The Baron's fate could not be escaped. Homage, celebration and dance was paid to the Quartz Stone of Truth as it was prepared. Then, the moment all had waited for - The Baron. But wait! His hood was removed to reveal that this was NOT the Baron, but an imposter! His guards were actually his henchen! Battle ensued, but good overcame evil.
The Paladin Knight hung his head low. He was no where closer to finding the Stones of Life than he was finding his lost love Kayla. So the saga continues...
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL:
This year, the Festival broke several new records. 1. Most rain in one day - and night! (3 inches +), 2. Most patrons in one day (1,300+ on Sunday), 3. Most vendors (45+), 4. Most participants (over 70) . 5. First television commercial. The Festival had it's best year ever!
I want personally like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff from Waterloo Village, volunteers, returning loyal and new vendors, entertainment, returning actors from Mystic Realms, Phoenix Swords and our new friends from Paragon Jousting, as well as the attending patrons. - Chris Lance, Producer
