On February 13, 2017, BMSS Social Studies department took the 5th through 7th graders to the Renaissance Festival at Deerfield Park. While there students got to see professional glassblowers demonstrate their craft among other craftsmen. There were also shows that had knights proving their mettle in a jousting tournament, living chess, and royalty throughout the festival. They competed against each other to see who could perform feats of strength. It was a day that allowed the students to catch a glimpse of the past and allowed them to experience a different time and world in a fun and exciting way.
