Momma, my Big Sister, Grandmomma, and I went to the 25th Annual Arizona Renaissance Festival.
|Captain Jack Sparrow|
There is something for the kid in all of us to be found at the faire.
One of the largest events of its kind in the nation, the Arizona Renaissance Festival is Celebrating 25 Years of Cheers! Revel in the atmosphere of 16th century Europe! Explore our 30-acre festival village filled with 12 stages of nonstop entertainment; falconry, performances of music, dance and comedy. Cheer on your favorite armored knight at a jousting tournament in the 5,000-seat arena. Foolish pleasures mix with artisan treasures as you shop, eat and revel with a cast of nearly 2,000 colorfully costumed characters.
Where else can you eat, drink, and be merry?
Our personal favorites? The Ded Bob Sho and Zilch the Torysteller, of course (more to come tomorrow!), and I got to meet my hero - Captain Jack Sparrow!
I got a mini stein and Momma saw the steampunk Octopus Parasol of her dreams ... but they sold the last one as she stood there.
If anyone is going to the Renaissance Festival before March 9, PLEASE let me know if you can pick one up for her.
Otherwise, she'll be ordering it from Clockwork Couture.
