Renaissance Faires: Merryment for the Whole Family

With so many Renaissance Faires scattered throughout the country, there is a good chance that one may be in driving distance to you. If so, I highly recommend making the trek with the whole family.

We went in costume this year and had a blast. Throughout the day we participated  in a peasant dance, feasted like kings and queens, enjoyed amazing shows, rode an elephant, wandered into magical shops of all shapes and sizes, and so much more. The Pirate Queen herself even caught sight of our own little scalawags and awarded them loot!

If you should get bored meandering the land and taking in all of the sites (unlikely), there are often many scheduled events going on simultaneously throughout the day, like peasant dances, hypnotists, jousting, parades, costume contests, and more. And if you’re really lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a celebrity, like Gumby!

Then again, simply sitting on a bench with a turkey leg, gawking at the wide variety of stunning costumes, is  plenty entertainment for me.  We’ll see you there come next fall!

In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met a renaissance TARDIS dress!
