From August 10-12, Hamilton's Claudia Driscoll Park is filled with wandering knights, noble ladies, jesters, royalty and beggars in the 3rd Annual Hamilton Renaissance Faire.

The days will feature minstrels, dancing, puppeteers, beer and mead, a vendor market, food and drink and even some battle demonstrations by the Ordor of Epona and The Society for Creative Anachronism. Those attending are encouraged to dress in costume, though, by no means, is it required. Everyone is invited to enjoy the day.

Claudia Driscoll Park is next to the Hamilton National Guard Armory on West Main.

The proceeds this year go to the Bitterroot Humane Society and the hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The event is sponsored by the Hamilton Charities Group.
