The Knights are jousting for fair maidens favours at Camelot
Girls, switch your spring carnival glam for ancient pointy hats and long swirling skirts. Boys, polish up your armour and sharpen those swords. The Medieval Games are on at Camelot Castle 2605 Healesville Koo-Wee-Rup Road, Yellingbo, Victoria. This is a lovely, fun day on stunning landscaped gardens and only about 40 minutes drive out of Melbourne. The kids will love to dress up too for this fun event.

All things medieval will be on display with spinning wheels turning, blacksmiths working their metal magic and those leather craftsman stitching up a new pair of boots just for you on the day.

There will be market stalls and food stalls on the go for wonderful yummy treats. The knights will clank it out in games of archery and mock battle. Who will be dubbed the victor and knight of the day?

The kids can watch the Punch and Judy Show with the beautifully crafted hand puppets of the era. Laugh till you cry at their antics. What a "punchup"!

And this is a real castle. Not fake Hollywood cardboard and painted backdrops of yesteryear. Minstrels will be wandering playing their lutes and pipes, so be careful they don't pipe the children away like the true Pied Piper.

Giants and jesters will juggle objects with grace and finesse.

So step back in time and spend a wonderful historical family day from 10 am to 4 pm this coming Sunday. And as a weather girl myself, Sunday is going to be perfect and Sunny at 26 degrees with light winds.

So sunscreen and smiles are the go.
