I've always wanted to go to a Renaissance Faire.
Last year, I attended one that was run by the County 4H Club. It was cute, but it was small and left me wondering if my expectations of a Ren Faire were a little too high.
Then, my kid attended a faire in Pennsylvania with some friends. She was confident I would love this faire. The Pennsylvania Rennaisance Faire is open from the first weekend in August through October. Every weekend has a different theme.
My expectations were a bit low after my initial Ren Faire encounter, but we chose to go for the Pyrate Invasion.
Of course, we dressed the part.
I was immediately impressed.
The King and I.
(I was all aflutter!)
I can't resist men in kilts. This is Tartanic. Visit their website and have a listen.
So much food!
Crabcake sandwich and pita chips with crab dip.
Steak on a Stake
Chicken on a Stake
So many vendors!
Pirates with attitude.
Great characters and storyline!
Rene, our favorite French Court Jester
There was jousting!
And of course, the Pirate Auction!
I even learned all the words to 'Hoist the Colours' so I could sing along.
Yeah, the kid was right. I had a blast.
