I look forward to the month of February every year, not only because my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary on Valentine's Day but the Arizona Renaissance Festival comes to our state! Last year we celebrated our 25th year of wedded bliss there. We made sure to have our hands waxed together with silver streaks in order to commemorate our special achievement. Read last years review here. If you have never attended the Ren Fest you are missing out on some exciting fun for the whole family. This medieval amusement park has 13-stage theaters, a 30-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast fit for a king.
This year we went with my brother and his wife. As you can see one of the first things we had to do was enjoy the huge turkey legs and some beverages. Don't care for turkey legs? Don't worry there is so many food and beverage choices that you are bound to find something wonderfully edible to enjoy. Besides the delicious legs we also consumed chocolate covered strawberries, corn on the cob, bread bowl, and fish & chips.
There are so many shows to see that we are never able to see everyone in one day. This year we were able to enjoy the Cirque de Sewer Acrobat with Acro-Rats, Cast in Bronze- The Musical Carillon, Hey Nunnie Nunnie!- Silly Songs of Counseling, and Tartanic- Combustible Bagpipes & Drums. We laughed till our mouths hurt and swayed to the beat of the entertaining music.
