Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire

My daughter, Danielle and I attended the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. We had a fantastic time and I thought I would share some of the photographs of our fab day.

We met the Queen and her court strolling through the village.


Isn't she lovely, I love the costumes!

These ladies serenaded us, they were so charming.


We watched a mud wrestling wedding, what fun! The "bride" was so funny.

My lovely daughter, Danielle tried on some of the masks they were selling at the booths. I love how her eyes are the major focal point, even though she is wearing an elaborate mask.

I love the kilt! He was directing the grape tossing contest.

Isn't he great, I love the stockings and his woeful pirate expression.

We tasted wine at the wine tasting booth, but I think the bartender is trying to taste more than the wine!

We met this fierce fellow tending his bone fire


Isn't he great? I love his exuberance!

As the day came to a close, we attended the jousting match.  This lovely lady was selling flowers.

Let the jousting begin! Of course the Queen's knights won the match.

We ended the day with a visit to the gift shop and some more wine tasting. It was great fun and I'll be sure and have my wench costume ready for next year!

So good to see that. It does look wonderful and fun. And the costumes are so cool. I want one of those skirts with the draping. Thanks for sharing. And you go, Wench !!!
