A few weeks ago, I teased this photo on Instagram to see if anyone knew where I was at. Within seconds, I got a resounding “Dinner and Tournament” from mostly everyone. I was on assignment that day for the Anaheim Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau as I was writing a behind-the-scenes piece about Medieval Times in Buena Park.
I spent a good hour with their master horse trainer and learned about how a squire moves up the ranks to become a knight, I got an awesome rare tour of the horse stables, I watched half-dressed hunky dudes wash down the horses after a show, I got to step foot into the famous arena, I got to look in on the famous falcon while it slept, I listened to the cast of the show joke around with each other on their lunch break, and I got a super sneak peek at “the board” – the one that determines which knight is going to win the tournament during the next show. It was a really fun afternoon.
My piece is finally up and I would love for you to head over to AOCVCB to read it! Behind The Scenes at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
