Bristol Renaissance Faire – 2013

This is our second year at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. I love this event for myself and the children and made sure I spared a day for it. The weather was perfect. Here are some tips for beginners:

  1. Get your tickets at Walgreen’s beforehand. They are not dated. You save $3 each.
  2. Bring a lot of extra cash for the rides.
  3. If it’s your first time, try to go as early as possible. There are lots of shows to watch and rides to get on. You might go for two days if you are going alone and are really into the festival. With children, one day a yar should be good enough.
  4. A lot of people go there with costumes. You can let your children wear their favorite fairy, princess, pirate or hero costume. You can dress to the occasion as well.
  5. If you have little children come prepared with lunch and snacks. The food options are not very healthy.
  6. Bring your slings and sturdy strollers for smaller children.

Vegetable JusticeThis tomato-throwing-in-return-of-insults game is my husband’s favorite. The guy is hilarious. He just kills it.

Joust FightWatched the Joust Tournament again. Apparently, they have different shows at different times. They do not repeat the same show during the day.
