Peoria's Wildlife Prairie Park Continues to Please


Peoria's Wildlife Prairie Park continues to please both young and old alike, but it more than returned its value a coule of weeks ago when it hosted a magnificent Medieval Faire alongside its normal fauna and flora. Everywhere you turned colorfully garbed period royals, palace stalwarts, yeoman, and peasants were on view.     
The costume was not period but the ardor was evident

When it got too warm for the open field you could always take to the cool of the wooded trails and enjoy the animals.  

The cougar was on the prowl.

The Bison herd seemed oblivious to all excitement
As did some of the celebrants.  Good night fair knight!
