OU at 13th century

If you want to travel on time and had fun living like a knight, a pirate or a princess, this weekend was the perfect chance to do it. The Medieval Fair has been at OU.

From Saturday 3rd April to Sunday 5th, the OU Reaves Park has become in a little medieval city. If you were walking by this fantastic place you could find from a medieval castle to a pirate ship, also knight's tournaments, camels, blacksmiths, magicians and all kinds of food. A Medieval Experience was the slogan for this year's fair, trying to attract attention of every student and Oklahoman. Before this fair, the Norman Arts Council Hotel Grant Program organized some events to learn about this period of the history.

We are very excited about offering these educational opportunities and academic activities in conjunction with the Medieval Fair” said Linda Linn, Fair Coordinator. “There is so much interest in this period of history among the public. It’s nice to add new venues for a variety of activities.”

I also think that is very important learning about our history and day after day people give less importance to that. People love this kinds of fair, but I think that OU should have more events like this.
