OMGosh talk about a total blast!! It had been a few years since our last visit to the MNRF--pre youngest DS & he's almost 5 1/2!! The sites, sounds, smells, merchants, entertainment & you can't forget the food (the yummy delicious food!!) it is almost more than you can take in!! If you have never been to a Renaissance Festival & are given the chance you HAVE TO GO!!
This was the 37th year of the festival and it is one of the largest in the country. When you walk through the entrance it will take you back in time to the 16th century!! It is tucked away in a wooded area in Shakopee, MN on 22 acres, like a little hidden city from time passed. There is jousting, belly dancers, wenches, muses, gypsies, the royal court along with the king & queen, stockades and numerous street entertainment!!
This was also an extra special day because 8 years ago Eric & I went to the MNRF on our very 1st date!!
Here are some pictures from our day! I hope you enjoy!! *wink*
