Suncoast residents travel back in time at the Sarasota Medieval Fair | Tech US News


MYAKKA CITY, Fla. (WWSB) – Whether you’re interested in archaic duals or metalwork by a real blacksmith, the Sarasota Medieval Fair is the place to get your fix.

Hidden in the Mallaranny Forest in the city of Myakka, people can be transported back in time.

With Hurricanes Ian and Nicole causing so much tragedy for Suncoast residents, participants said this gives them a chance to leave those thoughts at the entrance.

Many people dress up in their favorite medieval costumes. This was the case for Megan Hiller and Blake Weinreb who said that costumes are fun, but it’s even better to forget about the real world for a few hours.

“Coming here and seeing all these other people who are enjoying the same type of activity. It’s just a world away from the normal world,” Hiller said.

Dressed as a Viking warrior, Hiller says her costume was two years in the making. Weinreb, who was a medieval version of Spider-Man, said he did it the night before.

“Ironically, I wouldn’t say this is a way to ground yourself, because it’s all based on fantasy. But the thing is, it’s a way to immerse yourself in a way that’s not going to knock you down,” Weinreb said.

The Sarasota Medieval Fair runs Saturdays and Sundays through November 27th.
