EAGLE, Idaho -- It was jousting and jesters at the annual Ye Old Renaissance Fair Sunday in Eagle. It was fun for a cause too, as the fair was actually a way to help families adopt children.

The fair is a not-for-profit charity organization and they have been holding fairs like the one in Eagle since 2009.

The goal was to get sponsors and raise money so that families can have a little bit of financial help when it comes to adopting, something that can be very costly.

So you may wonder, what does a Renaissance fair have to do with adoption?

It's just amazing, said Jackie Briggs, the fair director. So many people have such a heart to do it and to help. And really, the people are involved because they want children to have a chance at a happily ever after of their own.

The fair is an annual event and has continued to grow. This year, they attracted around 200 performers, including a fire juggler who came all the way from Hollywood.
