Dover Castle Jousting Tournament 2017

This year, Dover Castle put on their first Jousting Tournament event, to our delight. We attended on the first day, and were blown away by the phenomenal level of entertainment. There were four knights for the crowd to support. We told Kaylah that we are in the South, so a pennant flag was purchased for our man in red. The crowd was gathered thick and expectant, and we were not disappointed. Here are some shots from our vantage point high above the arena.
