Ah, the RenFest. Honestly, I was both disappointed and impressed with the festival. Not quite as many over-the-top enthusiasts as might have thrilled me, but at the same time, quite an impressive showing by the festival producers. I hadn’t been to a renfest since I was a little kid. The buildings, characters and overall showmanship are excellent. But like most of the world, the people-watching is the best part.
After a while, we figured out that the people in the best costumes were part of the festival. Though some of the guests had come in full regalia, they really couldn’t touch the people who were actually paid to be there. And I must say, the entertainment was bangin’. We saw a juggling act that had us rolling in our seats laughing. Good times!
Apparently each day Lady Katherine Parr must decide whether or not to accept His Majesty King Henry VIII’s marriage proposal. I don’t know if she always says yes, but on yesterday she did. For whatever reason, David was adamant that we witness this enactment. I was more impressed with the acrobats.
This last one is pretty soft, but who doesn’t love babies? I love when they turn and smile at me!
