Conquistadore at Fort King Festival


We are "out-of-pocket" at the moment, visiting in South Florida. I've been unable to make my usual rounds, but will try to catch up as best I can in a few days. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Oh, man, I'd love to see one of such medieval style festivals... I'm sure that around here there are many, I need to check in detail where there'll be one going so that I can see it, must be fun!
God bless you!

I don't know . . . I guess I've always thought that people in Florida have pointy heads!

Enjoy the hometown. Will be back in a few weeks, also. That outfit looks like it would be very hot running around the new world.

Have a great time! Careful you don't get into a fight with a Conquistador. They can be dangerous! ;-)

That is so cool. I love the reflection in his breast plate too.

Have a great weekend Jacob!

His beard face is perfect for this Spanish Conquistador armor!

Have a corned beef sandwich for me at the nearest TooJays, with a Dr Brown’s Diet Cream Soda too.!!!!!!

It's the return of The Coneheads!

Hope you're having a blast. We'll be here waiting.

Nice people shot. But I wonder why people often worship the wrong heros. Conquistadors are no more than greed-driven plundering robber barons.

Hope you have a nice trip!

He certainly looks as if he stepped off the stage in a local but well funded company of Man of La Mancha!

Is it heavy?

@ Beachlike - I don't really know. He didn't seem to be in any discomfort and it was quite warm...
