Most areas have a local Reinassance festival at some point in the year. Anyone ever go to them? This year at my festival they had a pirates theme! The pirates were awesome looking. But I love to check out different festivals and the shops and things. I was going to by this knife at my festival but decided against it and then my sister went to her's and found the same knife by with a different design, a better design, and it was a heck of a lot cheaper. So its good to shop around! I simply love going to them though just for the atmosphere. Queens, Lords, Ladies, Jousting, Sword Fighting, Human Chess. Its a great escape from civilzation and fun to pretend you are actually in that era.
