Renaissance Faire



Saturday was filled with all the wonderment and magic that comes with the Halloween season. Lords, knights, maidens and queens gathered to sing Celtic ballads and feast on turkey legs while maids served beer. Magic brooms stood upright, jeweled chalices flowed with black cherry cider, and maidens wore flower headpieces and gold crowns. It felt like the scene out of a medieval movie set, complete with English accents. Even Merlin the magician made an appearance.

  1. I use to go every year with a huge group of friends, and it was always a blast! I can still picture the people walking around with steins of beer and turkey legs! :)

  17. I seriously LOVE the renaissance faire when it comes to our city! I have such fun memories from when I was little and we used to go on field trips. I try to save up cash to blow and go spend it every year at the festival :)

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! They have been making my day!
