Jonny Moseley’s Wildest Dreams: JOUST!
Watch as Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley is challenged like never before in front of thousands of screaming fans and the Queen’s Royal Court. This Wildest Dreams episode takes Jonny back in time and into the crazy world of the Northern California Renaissance Faire at Casa de Fruta just outside of Gilroy. He quickly learns there’s more to it than giant turkey legs, grog and carnival games. Live jousting and one-on-one combat in full armor is serious stuff, even when choreographed. The only question is, will Jonny keep his cool or lose his head?
This region of California has plenty to offer, ranging from the agriculturally oriented theme park Gilroy Gardens to the Gilroy Garlic Festival, a summer celebration of the flavorful bulb. And don’t miss out on the local wine scene: the Santa Clara Valley Wine Trail showcases dozens of wineries, including many with historic roots.
