What a wonderful day for the Pharsalia Folk Festival. You’ve read about it in our April issue of the magazine. Today we went out and spent some time there. Huge turnout for the event and Sunday looks to be as beautiful a day as Saturday. So if you haven’t made it out there yet, make sure you go on Sunday!

There are many, many “in costume” period demonstrations. Here’s one in front of the main house at Pharsalia.
This is just a small sample of what you will see at the Folk Festival, be sure to make it out Sunday if you haven’t had the chance.
