Don't get me wrong - I don't automatically think "geek" when I think of a RenFest... I mean - my younger sister loves these things... oh, wait...
so, given the fact that the tickets were Free (my favorite price) this sounded like an okay way to kill some time... even though it was so windy that it was miserable to walk around to the outdoor booths and they had to turn the Jousting Tournament into a fairly lame display of guys on horses chopping cabbages...
There were a few "up" moments - where else could M.O.T.H. get a huge Turkey Leg?
(doesn't that make you want to sing "He-nery the eighth I am I am..."?)
And if you're in the market for the latest in Wench Wear... this is the place to be!
And my all time favorite? I love the cute little signage that has been created just for this event... we weren't at a Fair - we were at a Faire... we weren't paying through the nose for Sodas - they were Sodaes (seriously? yeah, I didn't quite get that one either)... and the bathrooms?
Next time - maybe I'll see if my sister wants to come along, because THAT might be fun... as long as we don't bring any kids :)
okay - so I've been a liar this whole post - actually the whole event was billed as a Medieval Faire... but I had to employ a little Literary License in order to tell you that if we're ever invited to another of these... my kids plan to Ren Fest in the other direction.
Trust me, that's Hilarious if you say it like Scotty from Star Trek... really.
