So this post is a little late. We went to the Renaissance festival about 2 weeks ago.
It had been ages since going and I thought it would be fun to take the kids,now that they're older and more manageable!
We ate....like kings and queens, turkey legs and sausage on a stick. There was so much more but the prices are a little ridiculous.We did have a lot of fun walking around, playing some games and people watching but the best part (according to the kids) was watching the jousting tournament. Jax couldnt understand that it was only pretend, he thought that the poor knight was really dead after having his throat slit! This is the perfect place to people watch, LOL, every walk of life shows up there.
You have the die hard mid evil lovers who dress up in ancient clothes. You have the ones that have this weird thing with Pirates (I dont think these were in the same era? Were they?) and then you had the gothic/Conan the barbarian ones......she was actually really pretty and I had to have a picture of her, but the guys that were with her.....wow.
We shopped, even though I had no money to buy and even if I did....I dont think I would spend the money on half of the stuff!
This is the Kings horse, he had a mustache! Not the king....the horse. Look closely!!
Entertainment galore! This weird guy was the bell player. As strange as he was, he played some beautiful music!
This duo did awesome juggling and acrobatic tricks. The kids were amazed, so that's all that counts.
The belly dancer was amazing. If I could only move my body like that!
All in all it was a fun day! We will go again next year but take a lot more money with us. It definitely wasnt a "take $25 and that should be good" type of trip :)
