Just wanted to share some photos of our day at the local Renaissance Festival.
You can view all the photos I took over the weekend HERE.
We headed over to the Bay Area Ren Fest on Saturday, we had not been since they moved it behind MOSI and it was a lot of fun!
The first stop we made was at the hair braiding station, I always love getting my hair done and this time C went with the princess braid..
We then walked over and caught the last few minutes of the Human Chess Match, it's really interesting how they have live fights. It's rather comical really, but all in good fun.
It was about time for the Mud Show, something that I have never missed everytime we go. These guys just crack me up, helps that they do Shakespeare and fall in the mud a lot. This time around they did Macbeth!
I loved the cheap props, this guy was supposed to be a three headed witch and he had two balloons with faces drawn on them. Was so tacky funny, you couldn't help but laugh!
You know I hear a mud bath can be quite soothing. This guy was playing dead for about 10 minutes. I don't remember the names, but I know the story. He was the guy who comes back from the dead.
He was the wife, had a cute dress too before they threw him in the mud. :lol:
They did a really great job, although they did fall on their but at the end. It certainly didn't look planned. :lol:
I always called my daughter my little monkey and she totally proved it by climbing all the way to the top of one of those rock climbing contraptions. LOL
There was this funny guy at the Tomato Toss, he would insult people while they were throwing. We were all laughing, my honey took a shot at it and he told him, "I love it when fat guys wear leather jackets, it's like it never came off the cow." :lol:
They had all these great characters just walking around the festival interacting with everyone. We even met a one legged pirate! Although he was a little bit tipsy.
C pulled the sword out of the stone and got to be Queen for the Day, for a dollar. :lol: And boy did she let that go to her head! Had to stop that really quickly. :lol:
Tried our luck at the Strength Test, all three of us tried. C on the small, me in the middle and Phil on the big one. C was the only one who hit the bell. :lol: So much for that!
If you ever get to attend the Renaissance Festival in Tampa, I HIGHLY recommend seeing the Washer Woman, completely HILARIOUS!
These ladies were nuts and if you didn't scream or clap loud enough, they would wet their wash and throw water on the audience. We were in the front row and got mighty soaked. :lol:
This woman was crazy! She kept trying to molest every good looking guy she could get her hands on. :lol:
We ended the day when C went on this fun looking ride and screamed her head off. It was called the Wild Boar, I felt sorry for the guy who had to spin and push them though. :lol:
Day 2 incoming shortly.
