Become a Knight at Casa Loma!
It seemed fitting to make our way to Casa Loma for a Halloween inspired event just as ominous weather clouds began to set above the castle turrets. It was a cool and rainy morning and we stepped through Casa Loma's massive wooden doors and in to a great hall, only to be greeted by a knight in full armour, wielding a friendly sword and a welcoming smile.
We were about to participate in the Become A Knight workshop. This unique event offered guests the opportunity to step in to a medieval past and meet real knights wearing steel armour, and get a closer look at their weaponry. From daggers to swords, a mace to chain mail, and a quick lesson in footwork and sword play, Become a Knight was unlike anything we've ever experienced.
Take a look at our photos:
