Medieval event gains support

Knights, damsels and jesters will have a little extra time for camaraderie

Knights, damsels and jesters will have a little extra time for camaraderie.

Lumby council has extended the noise bylaw from sunset until midnight during the Society for Creative Anachronism’s medieval event Sept. 13 to 15 in the ball park.

“We are not an overly noisy group, but we do socialize quite late into the night,” said Marlaine Matson, with the society, which is also known as the Shire of Krakenfjord.

“We hosted this same event last year and we had no complaints that we are aware of.”

Coun. Lori Mindnich believes it was important for council to grant the extension of the noise bylaw.

“Everyone in the community enjoys going to see them and their activities and they cleaned up after themselves last year,” she said.

“We want to encourage more groups to come to the community. It’s a perfect way to show the community off.”
