Around this time every year [October-November], our state hosts the Renaissance Festival. Which is just a really big gathering of people that dress up either in awesome Renaissance outfits or Pirates. You might find a Link or two wondering around the marketplace or the Doctor [from the Doctor Who, series] lost looking for his TARDIS.
It’s one of the biggest things I look forward to going at least twice, if I can, during the fall season. I haven’t been brave enough to dress up, but I do enjoy looking at all the amazing things the artisans bring [all around the country] to sell or for us to look at.
They have palm readers and dancers, shows that are funny or contain birds, jousting, and guys that just walk around and pester you. It’s quite entertaining.
The Renaissance Festival has an over 20+ Acre lot near the Concord Mills area that is dedicated just for them. So for me, it’s a trek just to get up there. About a good 30ish minute drive with traffic.
I mostly go for the goods that they are selling there and the food. I love me a good turkey leg. I’ve gone already this year during opening weekend and took some pictures. [I wanted to take more but I sadly didn’t… It was a really hot opening weekend.]
