Castlerock in the Park on July 6th
An afternoon of family friendly fun for “Knights and Ladies” of all ages.
Castlerock Museum in Alma, Wisconsin will hold its annual Castlerock in the Park event on Saturday, July 6th from 1:00-5:00pm at Rieck’s Lake Park. This FREE event offers an afternoon of family friendly fun for “Knights and Ladies” of all ages.
During the event, Visitors can team up as a “Roman or Celt” in the children’s melee and try on chain mail and surcoats. Frank and Jamie LaBreck will have several dozen reproduction swords on display. They will be doing combat demos throughout the afternoon and a special program on Arming Up for Battle at 2:30pm. Derek Olson and Thomas Peters from A Life Medieval will be showing off their arms and armor and talking about knighthood. They will also have a sword cutting demo at 4pm. Other highlights include a miniature tabletop trebuchet and a homemade catapult that launches soccer balls.
Concessions will be provided by Tansy’s on Main. Rieck’s Lake Park is located two miles north of Alma, Wisconsin on Highway 35. If activities at the park get rained out, we will set up what we can back at the museum.
Castlerock Museum will be open from 1-4pm that afternoon for visitors that would like to see its unique collection of arms and armor. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Children four and under are free. The museum is located at 402 South 2nd Street across from the courthouse. Contact the museum at 608-685-4231 or [email protected] for details.
