It was a lot of fun!
I have been to Renaissance Fairs before, but we have never taken the kids.
I think they really liked it.
The first thing we did was stop in the "Kid's Realm" and let the kids play games.
Then we walked around to watch some of the shows.
The boys really liked this fencing show.
The boys picked out these bows & safe arrows.
Riley is getting a lesson on how to use his here:
(It was SUPER windy yesterday....)
The kids had to take the coins to the Royal Court to exchange them for a prize.
Here they are with the queen.
They also got a stamp saying they were now Musketeers.
While we were walking around waiting for the jousting to begin, we saw some very interesting people.
This was really fun to watch.
This lady was our announcer.
These were the two champions.
The one with the yellow and red checks was our side's champion.
He was cheering them on and laughing so hard at the jokes that the announcer and the men would tell.
We moved onto face painting when we were done watching the joust.
Zach felt that he was too old for face painting. ;-)
But Lily and Riley wanted to.
The husband/wife duo was really funny!
They were also really good at their acts.
