In Texas, for the past thirty-one years it seems, there has been a gigantic fedtivel entierly devoted to the renaissance period of time. From where I live at it’s about an hour away on a traffic-less day, secluded around trees and forests, a far away place unlike any other.
Now, I’m pretty sure there are other festivals such as this around the country, and I bet they are just as lovely or even better. But when I went for the first time this week I was entierly enamored by this magical place.
Firstly everyone who works there is in complete costume, and from the looks of it they rather die than get out of character. They will yell, intimidate you, sing, dance… they are very serious actors, something amazing to see.
Secondly there are so many things to do! Games, rides, stores… its fifty-five acres of amazing stuff. I got to buy some necklaces and a ton of delicious food, but I really want to go back for an elephant ride and a quill pen and some India ink.
Thirdly it is beautiful. Oh gosh it was amazingly beautiful, every shop and store was designed to look as if it was from six hundred years ago. There where so many wooded areas, beautiful plants growing wildly, flowers being grown near chapels and well, everywhere.
But here, just a few pics about my day here with my good friend Myddie.
Ps, it was her giant turkey leg, not mine.
On the downside my phone’s screen broke while I was buying popcorn. It was also raining so much, so much that my curly hair and bangs got frizy and out of place, we also ended up covering ourselved with my black sweater to avoid the rain, where we almost fell because we could hardly see.
But it was a great trip, and I truly need to go back. This renaissance festival was amazing, just beautiful.
Have you ever gone to a very good time period festival/place?
