Have you ever been to a Ren Fest before? I guarantee you it is a unique experience. If you have little ones, or if any of your family likes fantasy books or medieval history it's well worth checking it out.
They usually have vendors selling all sorts of cool things from food to toys and clothes and the more unusual swords and leather goods. They also have shows and demonstrations. Its worth it if youve never been to one, makes for a great story.
