The Knights of the Rose are one of the few all women jousting troupes in America. They perform all over the country, and in this case performed at the medieval faire in Bowling Green, IN. Each jouster cares for their horse immensely and everyone has fun as they race at each other from opposite ends of the list.
Artisan Alley has been connecting local artists and the community since 2014. They recently moved to a new location on 2nd St, which features their consignment store, MADE, as well as spaces where artists have set up their own shops, such as a voodoo shop and a barber. Their other location on Rogers features tools that members can check out to work on wood, metalsmithing, and other projects. It’s a very interesting space with something to offer to anyone who steps inside.
Somewhere in Bowling Green, IN, surrounded by cornfields and forest, two horses and their riders race at each other with a giant stick in one hand and a wooden shield in the other. There’s the pounding of hooves, a loud smack, and then the applause of the crowd. This is jousting with the Knights of the Rose on a ninety-degree September day.
