Something Out of Place at Wesselman Park

Folks took a trip back in time to the early days of the renaissance when adults settled disputes by swinging swords.

It was all on display Saturday at Evansville's Wesselman Park.

‘Pageantry in the Park’ was free and open to the public.

People were encouraged to dress up as they learn about how things were done in Europe hundreds of years ago.

The Evansville chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism put on the event and says the combat is what people really come out to see.

“Young master Corey stabbed me in the throat. Now you'll see I'm still here talking to you, but we enact wounds, but we wear the armor for a purpose, for protection, and ultimately, it's a hobby. This is something we do on weekends,” said Henry Hina, aka, ‘Accolon.’

The king and queen also handed out awards for the most chivalrous knights and noble ladies.
