The 2014 Winterfest Medieval Fair had a VIP start at the weekend, with former Prime Minister Bob Hawke officiating at the event’s opening ceremony.
The former PM accompanied his wife, author Blanche d’Alpuget, who had a stall at the medieval fair.
Mr Hawke met with jousters, and watch as they perform the morning’s Skill-at-Arms competition.
The event also included the Full Flight Birds of Prey display, as they flew to celebrate the opening of the fair.
Winterfest took place at the Old Kings School Site at Marsden Street, Parramatta on July 5 and 6.
