Volunteers preparing for one the biggest events in Norman
Vendors along with volunteers set up tent for the 33rd Annual Medieval Fair of Norman Wednesday afternoon. The Medieval Fair has become a staple for the city of Norman.

"It brings in a lot of tax revenue into the city of Norman and as well as you can't get a hotel if you wanted to right now," Ann Marie Eckhart said assistant coordinator of the Medieval Fair.

Eckhart also said the Medieval Fair last year brought in over 250,000 people during the three-day event. 

According to their website, the fair relives the Middle Ages with arts and crafts, food, games, and jousting tournaments just to name off a few.

The fun and entertainment starts this Friday 10 a.m. at Reeves Park. Admission is free.
