The King Richard's Faire in Carver is in its 29th season. It features a lot of what you might expect from a Renaissance fair — jousting, medieval costumes, sword play. One of the most popular attractions is a show highlighting some of the rarest animals on earth, which even includes a liger, a cross-between a lion and a tiger.

WBUR's Jack Lepiarz takes us backstage at the "Tale of the Tiger Show."

This program aired on October 22, 2010.
