UPDATE: Congrats to Carol W, who won the Family 4-Pack of tickets to see Mike the Knight at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact info. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Jousting, jesting singing and dancing are all on the program for this year's Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire, happening now through May 19 in Irwindale, but there's a very special guest who will be visiting this weekend—Mike the Knight.
The little knight-in-training who's the star of HIT Entertainment/Nelvana's CG-animated show that airs on Nick Jr., Mike the Knight will be making his way from the land of Glendragon to meet fans and greet fellow knights-(and ladies)-in-training on Saturday, April 20, at the Faire. There will also be storytellings and giveaways!
Mike the Knight was a surprise hit for CC. She loves following the little guy as he ventures out on quests all over the kingdom. The dragons don't seem to hurt, either.
Sounds like he'll fit right in at the Faire, which features more than 1,200 costumed performers in the themed village at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area. Not only that, but there will also be rides, arts and crafts, as well as 16th century games. According to the release, the event "recreates the celebratory spring day in 1574, when the world arrived to entertain Queen Elizabeth in the English Seaport of Deptford."
