ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-- The Albuquerque International Balloon Museum will host the Albuquerque Renaissance Faire on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 


"It's one of the events that we do that has a theme, and it's just so fun, family, friendly, and everyone's having a great time," said special events manager, Bree Ortiz.

On Thursday morning, two knights met at the museum to battle each other. With heavy gear and a determination to win, they duked it out.

It's all part of FIght a Night, a free attraction for kids.

“Once they get into it they love it and that can be like a conquest moment. A champion moment where they get to be kind of the shining star in the arena, and I think that it's very good for kids to have that experience," said one of the knights, Sir. Rowland.

Ortiz said there are other attractions like a baby race, pet costume contest, face painting, music and more.

She expects for nearly 8,000 lords and ladies to show up. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 4 to 12, and kids 3 and under are free.
