Be a Brooklyn yankee in King Arthur's court this month

Break out the bodices and the riding boots: ye olde Renaissance Faire is coming to Brooklyn.

On May 31, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Aviator Sports & Recreation will host the medieval event, featuring live jousting competitions and other events associated with the Dark Ages.

Families can take in armored foot tournaments (at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.), demonstrations of the trebuchet, or large catapult (at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.), and of course jousting (at 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.).

The fair will also feature entertainment from belly dancers, as well as psychics.

Vendors will also be on selling their craftwork and books, and concessions will be available.

The event is free, so bring the whole family.

Aviator Sports & Recreation is located at Hangar 5 at Floyd Bennett Field (3159 Flatbush Ave.). The fair will be held on the lawn across from the sports complex. For more information, call 718-758-7500 or go to
