Everyone loves a legend

had to put "baloon" to cover up the cyclist..


Legend has it János Zenthus was the actual founder of Szentes. On paper record it is a whole different story. In fact, according to historians no such person existed!! However, that didn't stop people from founding a society in his name. Each year (last weekend) the society organises a camp by setting-up tents, holding fighting tournaments and simply re-living the middle ages for 3 days.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Aren't those historical recreations fun? I love looking at the costumes and trying to imagine what living 'way back when' must have been like!

I love period reenactments! I helped out with a "Ren fest" for the last few years, but this year they didn't have enough money to do it. Now I have 2 tunics and no real reason to wear them. :(

Stories are fun. This reminds me of my sister and cousin playing Robin Hood and Maid Marion while I was the audience member responding to their theatrics.
