The falcons will not fly, and the horses are moving more slowly, but Belsay Hall are going ahead with their medieval-themed celebrations.
The bank holiday event at Belsay Hall has gone ahead despite the miserable weather, which has put a dampener on events around the region.
Plans for the weekend included full contact jousting, jester performances, and a battle between the hall's armour clad knights.
While all events have gone ahead so far, the flying displays have been cancelled for the Saturday, but are hoped to resume over the weekend.
The wet weather has made things difficult for a number of bank holiday events across the region.
Elsewhere, an all-day DJ event Jamboree at the Tyne Bar in Newcastle has been postponed until Saturday evening.
The Brazilian-themed event 'Boomba Down The Tyne' - organised in partnership with disabled and deaf organisations from the North East - also had to be moved indoors.
The Met Office predict the weather will improve on Sunday, but the rain is expected to return to the North East on Monday afternoon.
