Hudson Valley Mayfaire lured costumed Renaissance fans of all ages to its annual spring event at the Ulster County Fairgrounds. Belly dancers, musicians and other artists and performers shared their crafts with festival-goers and the other vendors. The Mayfaire raised money for The Queen's Galley food pantry in Kingston.(May 12, 2013)
