Cooks Creek was transformed into a medieval village of more than 3,000 people Saturday as the biennial medieval festival took place for the sixth time. The Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception and grotto became a castle, and its grounds a market and jousting fields where attendees could buy traditional garb and watch knights fight each other.
