The Georgia Renaissance FestivalYesterday the Hubs (Clayton) and I went to the Georgia Renaissance Festival (Ren Fest). I actually won tickets in a share contest from the Festival's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/#!/garenfest so we didn't even have to pay the entrance fee! Yay! I had really been wanting to go to Ren Fest for a while now, I went once when I was in like sixth grade and was excited to go again. This was Hubs first time but I think he enjoyed himself.
In case you aren't familiar with the Renaissance Festival: it's like going back into a 16th century kingdom. There were Knights, Royals and even Court Jesters, people in period costumes, and unique artisans, wares and eats. It is a family friendly event, totally safe to take the kiddies! And a whole lot of fun! We recommend it. (Just remember to wear sunscreen as the whole event is outside!)
