Luckily, Saturday forgot to bring the rain, and we were able to go to Castleton for the Renaissance Faire. This was my first, and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. My friend Shandi and I dressed up (our husbands would have too, but we didn't have time to make their costumes). We had a blast. I kind of wish we would have stuck around for a few of the shows as we walked around the park, especially the singing pirates, but I wanted to be sure we saw everything, and by that time, we were exhausted (we still didn't see everything; we missed an entire area of the faire). We already have a plan for what we are going to do next year.
Highlights for the day:
I went shopping with the Queen of Castleton. She was really nice.
We rode in a carriage around the faire, and the King criticized my husband's lordly wave.
We tried on a few items of armor.
The jousting match was pretty epic.
Seeing the other costumes was just spectacular (I just wonder how many people actually made their own, versus spending a truckload on them).
And, as promised... pictures!
