A pageant wagon has happened upon the Shire of Vinjar, and as
with any performance, we don’t know what will unfold! This
year there will be more children’s activities as well as the
usual championship tournaments in target archery, combat
archery, heavy combat, rapier and A&S. A Kid’s Korner
will be available during the feast; smalls must be parent
supervised while using it. Visit our website (www.shireofvinjar.org)
for tournament details and prizes. But wait, that’s not all!
Following court, the Vinjar Players will perform a play for
