In the time of the middle ages the midway was the heart of the villages’ events. Men and
woman would come from miles around just to test their skills in the plethora of games of
chance and luck. Like in those times we have recreated that old time fill, as you walk up
to the midway area you would see a rustic counter top spanning the gaming zone. The
first game you might notice is the eight foot tall Clunko Game, but don’t let the size scare
you. It’s a long-standing favorite of Bob Barker’s the Price is Right’s Plinko Game.
After you tried your luck at Clunko down the way are many more great games you can
adventure your way to. Seven – eleven ball toss is a fun game of chance, and if you like
to show off your skills you can try to attempt the Bottle Pick-Up, or the Egg-Roll for
terrific prizes of swords and masks. If you’re the type that enjoys your kids’
entertainment, at the Midway games we had your children in mind when we designed
the kids’ games with easy to win prizes for those kids ten and under. We hope you and
your family don’t miss out on this chance to be a champion at the Medieval Midway
The Medieval Midway Is Back!

Siamsa le Cheile, is a Scottish and Irish dance and music
troupe based in Northern California. We perform at many
Renaissance faires, Celtic festivals, and other events.
We could be described in the simplest of terms as a dance
troupe... but we are really much more than that. We practice
the traditional music and dance of Scotland and Ireland, and
we all share a love of traditional Gaelic culture. Many of our
members have made serious study of traditional Gaelic arts,
and we try to pass on our love of the arts and traditional folk
cultures through our performances.
Continuing these ancient traditions is very important to us, and
we also come from varied contemporary backgrounds. Our
members have earned academic degrees in history, theatre,
anthropology, psychology, business and medicine. Many of
our members are still in school, and are enjoying ways to
combine our love of traditional Gaelic culture with modern

The Universe According to Galileo Show™ is a unique interactive show
with the Maestro himself. With the "help" of his house maid Marina Gamba,
Galileo entertains & discusses the fundamentals of the budding science of
astronomy of his time. (Circa: 1608-1611.) With the ever popular, Planets
on a Stick™, Galileo asks for volunteers from the audience to become a
living model of the known universe based on the theories of Aristotle,
Ptolemy and Copernicus, as well as, his discoveries made with the
telescope. By adding a touch of wit, improvisation and a little Italian
Commedia Del' Arte flavor, you'll not only be entertained, but have a good
time learning something as well.
The show is somewhat family orientated (PG-13), the show is versatile and
flexible to accommodate for a children's audience and adult audiences. The
show can be done with as little as a few people for an up close and
personal show, to a full audience and everything in between.
Thomas Wood ~ Pyrojuggler

torches, knives, bowling balls, crystal balls, full glasses of
water, clubs and your hearts! He is renowned as a
contactut of the audience!
