Two Stabbings And A Beheading 11/20/11 At 5pm Joust At The Texas Renaissance Festival

Before the 5pm Joust at the Texas Renaissance Festival started, there was a warning to people faint of heart and small children that this joust was going to be "to the death".

Here are the four competitors in their finery.  I love how they had the horses in their outfits as well.

I was closest to the knight in Green.  He was representing France.  At the back of this picture you can see the king and queen of England, France and the Ren Fest.

This picture is a little blurry because it was taken just after they two knights had crossed lances.

Once the knights were knocked off their horses, they are forced to fight on foot.

The green knight looks ferocious.

The red and black knight somehow lit his sword on fire.  The other knight used that flame to light his whip on fire.  It was quite exciting.

The green knight prevailed.  The king said the red and black knight had not behaved with honor, so they beheaded him in front of the kings stage.

I have been trying to see the joust for many years, but have had poor timing, so I was thrilled to actually see it today.  They actually did a far superior job compared to what I expected to see.  Great job!!!
