The Shire of Midland Vale’s 5th Birthday

Come one and come all to Midland Vale as we celebrate each other as our Shire turns Five!  We are planning a day of fun and games for all ages and including all the things!  As February in New York is known to be a welcoming outdoor land, the Shire is looking into hosting all activities indoors should the weather on the day prevent any celebrating outdoors.

Rattan, Fencing and Youth themed tournaments will be round robin best of five

Thrown weapons will be themed tournaments with five axes, knives and javelins

Archery will be themed tournaments with, yes you guessed it, five arrows

There will be Bardic!  There will be Art!  There will be Brewing!  There will be Dancing!  There will be a Feast!  (More info on feast to come)
There will be Celebration!!
