Loveland to Host Colorado Midieval Festival at Devil’s Backbone
Knights, armor, history, poetry, art and showmanship, these are the things I associate with the term "midieval". According to Wikipedia the "Middle Ages or medieval period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery." You'll have a chance to be fully enthralled into this history with the Colorado Medieval Festival coming June 3rd, 4th and 5th to Loveland.
From the official Colorado Midieval Festival Facebook Page:
The Colorado Medieval Festival will be June 3rd, 4th and 5th just west of Loveland in The Savage Woods with the landmark of the Devil’s Backbone as a breathtaking backdrop. 1750 Savage Road, Loveland, CO.
