Roberts and Sever are members of the Jousting Alliance of Washington State. B.C. Ren Fest took visitors on a journey through the 1500s, in Shire Steller’s Grove with King Henry VIII and the notorious Jade Dragon Pirate crew. Besides jousting, the festival featured a man-powered carousel and swing, games of horseshoes and boules, archery, cannon fire and rat-a-pult, as well as a quarterstaff challenge, a shooting gallery and a town insulter.
