The Knight Festival attracted thousands of visitors to the Pannekoeckershuys in Den Hout (North Brabant) on June 12-13, 2011. The annual sports & games event included varied activities such as archery, sword fighting and pony riding. Children and adults alike admired the falconry show and sought through the medieval market to find the best medieval dress, reindeer skin or a wooden decoration. Finally, everybody came to cheer for the knights of the ‘Ridders te paard’ jousting company at the Knight Tournament: and indeed, the public’s favorite White Knight won the tournament, conquering the Black Knight in the last round.
