Robin Hood Festival - July 15,16,17, 2005

Julian the Sorcerer!
Hollywood's 1938 action movie, "The Adventures of Robin Hood" was re-released in 1948. It starred Olivia deHavilland and Errol Flynn. The film wowwed America and is still considered one of the greatest action films of all time, owing to the great swordsmanship. In Sherwood Oregon USA, a group of military veterans just home from the war saw a role for themselves in the excitement. They donned Robin Hood uniforms and hurried off to amuse the crowds that were lining up to see the movie. Everyone had a good time and The Robin Hood Festival Association was formed in 1952. The rest is history.
