On Festival days in medieval times, merchants brought their wares, along with their families, in wooden carts to the base of the city's walls. They set up a temporary shelter where their families slept, ate and played. Guildsmen worked at their crafts whenever business was slack, and everyone sold hard, shouting their wares at passersby. Festival days were a joyous gathering of people, a bustling social event, of color, music, laughter, and endless commotion. This describes the atmosphere of what we are trying to create at Ye Ole Mancos Village.
