Hey guys, guess what? I’m back.
I know, I know. I went radio silent for a couple days, but after a refreshing weekend and a fun day at my state’s Renaissance Faire, I’m back in action! So, speaking of Ren Faire, this is going to be more of me telling you guys how much fun it was, along with little bit of advice that can apply to going to any sort of event. Ready? Here we go!
It was so much fun, you guys! I didn’t go last year, but this year’s trip was a late birthday present from a friend of mine, plus it was the Faire’s 40th Season and it was amazing! Almost everyone was in costume, there were flower crowns and people carrying baskets of flowers to either just buy or get dipped in wax later, people were shouting and dancing and almost every little kid was running around with some kind of sword. And as a bonus, it was Romance Weekend so there were couples and cupids running around too!
I honestly can’t think of anything to really complain about, the Faire and the day as a whole was pretty much perfect—aside from the $4 water bottles, but that’s standard with any event. (Pro tip: bring your own water. Also comfortable shoes, I found a blister or two earlier today) My friends and I made it to the afternoon joust, there’s three jousts a day and the one we sat for was the Queen’s Joust. The knight that our section was rooting for didn’t win this one, but he was a good sport about it and everyone had a good time. If anything, the only things my friends and I agreed on is that we wished we had more money to spend on stuff because everything was gorgeous and handmade and we hoped all the craftspeople got a lot of money by the time the faire is done for the season. It was clear to see that there were hundreds of people walking around the grounds, so the Faire will definitely be around for forty more seasons. Heck, my friends and I are even going to volunteer at the Faire next year so we can be a part of the magic instead of just experiencing it.
I’ll end it on this: if you have a renaissance faire in your state, try to go to it at least one time in your life if you have the means to do so. And don’t worry, you don’t have to dress up and you don’t have to spend money if you don’t want to. Just go for the experience if you can, I know I’m gonna try to next year.
I hope you enjoyed me rambling for this Mondaze post and I hope the rest of the week treats you kindly. I’ll see you tomorrow for this week’s Tuesday Talk, okay?
This is Kryssie, signing off! Have a good one!
