Today's post is little different than most. As you know from time to time, I like to share fun family activities on the blog. I have shared about Halloweekend at Cedar Point, Our Visit to Six Flags Great America, and LEGO Kidsfest. This fall there is another fun event, and if you live in the midwest you might want to check it out. I have not gone before, but my family and and I are really excited to attend this year. Every weekend from August 22nd- October 4th (including Labor day and a special Friday Festival night Oct 2) the 37th Michigan Renaissance Festival will be open in Holly, Michigan.
The more I read about it, the more exciting it sounds. At the festival you will travel back in time to the 16th century. Inside the gates of a 17 acre village you will see taverns, Renaissance shops and even a castle. There will be continuous entertainment in the streets such as comedy, music, juggling and more. There will even be full armored jousting. Each weekend of the festival there will be a different theme. I can't decide which one I want to attend more. It starts with a pet festival on Aug 22-23, and ends with a "sweet" weekend with chocolate and cupcakes on Oct 3-4. Other weekends will include the Highland Fling, High Seas Adventures (think pirates!), Wonders of the World, Shamrocks and Shenanigans, and a Harvest Huzzah. Everyone single weekend sounds like a great time. If that is not enough, there will also be fabulous food and 300 artisans displaying their works.
If this sounds like something you will like to attend, you are in luck!
