This weekend we went to the Texas Renaissance Festival! It is the largest Renaissance Festival in the U.S, sitting on 55 acres out in the forest with permanent buildings and arenas. It was beautiful! Foliage growing over everything. Cobblestone walk ways and beautiful people in costume and character!
Travis and Levi aren’t as into the Renaissance Festivals as Delylah and I, and they decided to not dress up this year, which was fine. But Delylah and I rocked it in our Pirate Outfits! Every weekend is themed and we did not want to miss pirate weekend. Pirates have always been one of my kids favorite things!
The Renaissance Festival is a place where you should expect to spend a lot of money. Whether it be on food, drink or old timey rides. Everything costs money. (what’s new there right) I am fine with just walking around looking at all of the fascinating people and things for sale. Soaking it all in. That’s hard to do when you bring the kids. No matter how you spend your time there, it is worth going if you have never been. I am extremely sick right now and debated going. After struggling with myself as to whether or not we should go, I decided, Hell yes we should go. I would regret it if I had missed it. Now that we have gone for one weekend though, I am dying to go next weekend. It is day of the dead weekend and to dress up and be there for that would be amazing! Hopefully I feel better by then. And kids get in free on Sundays!
We did archery. I am not very good but by the end of loosing arrows I could at least hit the hay near the target. Delylah and I got to ride an Elephant. I was skeptical to do this at first. I hate seeing elephants at the circus, they are always getting poked and prodded. But at the Renaissance Festival they just follow the people walking them. It was pretty amazing! To touch and be so close to my favorite animal was the best part of the day there!
I think the Renaissance Festival is one of my favorite places. It doesn’t matter what you dress up as, who you are or what you like. I have been called a nerd for liking such things and I’ll take that. You can call me what you want to call me, I know I’m having more fun than most being myself!
If you have never been to a Renaissance Festival I highly recommend checking one out!
