Harkening back to the days of yore, knights in shining armor will battle it out at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Saturday.

US Knights will hold actual armed combat with medival weapons as they attempt to qualify for the international competition in Spain later this year.  Team captain Andre Sinou  says they hope to call the capital city their permanent home.

“This our fifth time being here. The first year we had 30 people. Last year we had a thousand. This hall was packed and we added more bleachers this year” says Sinou.

Tickets are $10 per person or $25 per family with no limit. The doors open at 11 at the Livestock Exhibition Building
