If you have never been to the Renaissance Festival, beginning today, February 7, 2009, just east of Mesa about 12 miles, there's some fun going on. Last year my husband and I made the trip and participated in the festivities. I've provided the link for more information about the Renaissance Festival and Artisan Marketplace. Today is the first day of eight weekends from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. including President's Day. The last day of the Festival is on the 29th of March.
The Talking Tree!!!!
There are lots of attendees, including families, and those dressed to the hilt. It looks as if we step back in time with the primeval buildings, costumes and regalia. Those working at the Festival were delightful, and many of those who attend the Festival regularly, were donned in period costumes.
Lots of yummy food including: turkey legs, pizza, cinnamon almonds, ice cream and more. There were jewelry and pottery shops, shoe shops for those special period boots and costume shops for those having their photos taken, caricatures, etc. Palm reading, horoscope, tarot cards and more. Trust me, people really get into this stuff, and many travel to other states to participate.
12 Stages or Theatres with entertainment going continually. I don't know if they are there this year, but last year, we sat down and watched the Wyldmen at the Mud Stage. It was a riot. The two "stars" did an act in slow motion, and eventually ended up in the mud. Very funny. The little ones were invited to sit in front if they wanted to with the explanation that there would be mud flying. The kids who were okay (and their parents were okay with it) all sat close to the mud pit. They did get splattered as warned.
So much to do here in our Phoenix Valley. For those of you visiting or living in or around Mesa or Phoenix, it's well worth the trip. There are lots of things to do for young and old. As for me and my hubby? Two hours was just perfect. Lots of fun.
Be sure to gather up your friends and families and make a day of it.
