Lloydminster Lions Club Medieval Feast A Great Success
In a night filled with enchantment and unforgettable experiences, the Lloydminster Lions Club’s 4th Annual Medieval Feast transported attendees back in time to the captivating era of Medieval Times. The event, held at the Kitscoty Hall on September 23, was an absolute triumph, leaving guests with cherished memories, laughter, and a sense of camaraderie that will endure for years to come.
The festivities commenced promptly at 5:30 p.m., as the grand herald introductions echoed through the hall, setting the stage for a truly remarkable evening. At 6:30 p.m., guests were treated to a lavish four-course feast that delighted their palates and satisfied their appetites.
Each of the first three courses showcased a harmonious blend of protein, starch, and vegetables, culminating in a delectable dessert that left taste buds yearning for more.
However, the Medieval Feast was far more than a culinary adventure. Between courses, guests eagerly participated in medieval games and tournaments. Axe throwing, archery, and jousting were among the activities that allowed attendees to test their skills in a controlled and safe environment. As Shelley Tatro, a member of the Lloydminster Lions Club, playfully noted, “Fear not, real axes, arrows, and horses weren’t part of the equation!”
Yet, authenticity prevailed in other aspects of the evening. Guests were encouraged to interact with the King, adding a touch of salt to their meal through personal exchanges. Courtesy was paramount, with attendees required to offer a respectful bow or curtsy to the King. Neglecting this custom might lead to a stint in the stocks, a predicament that could be resolved by serving time or contributing to the Royal treasury. The 50/50 draw and silent auction also provided opportunities to engage and contribute.
As the night unfolded, an array of circumstances led to some entertaining moments in the stocks. Playful flirtation, fashion mishaps, and breaches of decorum all caught the attention of the Sheriff, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event.
Guests seeking a mystical experience sought counsel from the tarot reader, while jesters and troubadours provided amusing performances. The medieval-themed photo booth allowed attendees to capture whimsical snapshots, while the ambiance resonated with medieval melodies, setting the mood until the dance floor came to life.
Importantly, arrangements were made for attendees to have safe rides home, ensuring they could eat, drink, and be merry without concern.
The Lloydminster Lions Club masterfully blended history, entertainment, and camaraderie to create a night of medieval grandeur that captivated all in attendance. The 4th Annual Medieval Feast was an event that will be remembered for years to come, a testament to the club’s commitment to providing enchanting experiences to the community.
While Medieval period dress was not required, it was strongly encouraged, adding an extra layer of authenticity to the enchanting evening.
