Bristol Renaissance Fair 2011

by - 6:48 PM

I've always wanted to attend a Renaissance Fair. Call me a nerd or a weirdo but history is interesting to me and to see an old English village recreated with people dressed up like they're from 1599 with foods that were eaten back then is intriguing.

I found a deal online for buy one get one free tickets because when tickets are somewhat expensive I worry that it might not be worth it. I did not know what to expect or how to dress or what to do. Their website is pretty thorough in answering questions. You can wear regular clothes and they have costumes for rent of dresses and suits for the time period. They have menus and maps for all of the food vendors, activities, performances, etc. and so off we went to the Bristol Renaissance Fair.

This man made little sculptures out of glass using a blowtorch shaped like a dragon!

Puzzle rings - Never heard nor seen one til this day.
Looks like a regular ring... but-

-You can disassemble it into different pieces and it's a challenge to get it back together.
