February 15 Carnevale Sapphira
Carnevale is here! Come drive away the winter blues and let off some pent-up energy with the friendly folks of Winter's Gate. Starting in medieval days (and continuing to contemporary time) Carnevale aka Karneval aka Fasching aka Carnival aka Masopust aka Fastnacht aka Vastenavond aka Mardi Gras was a time for fun and frivolity before the Lenten season put an end to all that foolishness. The day's activities will include whims and contests in the spirit of Carnevale (details to follow). Feast is a potluck with a meat dish (hey, it's Carnevale) provided by the Barony.
