Men in tights and turkey legs

We finally made it to the ! It was so much fun! If you are ever in the area, I would really recommend going. Heck, I'd recommend going even if you have to drive a couple of hours, because it's really worth it. I couldn't capture all of it, there was so much fantastic stuff! But here are a few things I did capture:


Check my Renaissance Faire photos on Flickr
The opening parade
(those you see behind the pretty girl are Robin Hood's "merry men")



Queen Elizabeth
God save the Queen!



Maypole dance
The Maypole Dance



Hot Pirate

Robin Hood won the jousting tournament - and the hearts of many of the ladies in the audience




A segment of the Maypole dance (sorry about the poor image quality):



We had turkey legs for lunch! Tried to convince my husband to share some mead, but he refused because he was still recovering from the sugar-shock he got from the cheesecake on a stick and we still had to drive home :-)

I'm reminded of Reno 911, but those people looked more attractive. Glad you had a good time! We have one by Los Angeles that I used to go to. I had a family friend that used to spend the night there...I got to hear about some crazy parties.

So did you dress up? Because if you did, you should totally post a picture!

Elisa said...

LOL Kelly - No, I did not dress up. Not unless you count dark wash jeans and flats as "dressing up" ;-) But I tell you, after seeing Robin Hood win the jousting tournament I was totally ready to find some Lady Marian garb to throw on! The man was fiiine.
