Passport to Merriment

We went to the Maryland Renaissance Festival over Labor Day Weekend. Sorry to disappoint everyone but we did not dress up. I couldn't find my wench dress so we just went casual. I've heard a lot of good things about Ren Fairs and I was pretty excited. Mainly for the turkey leg and other amazing fair foods. I did tear up a turkey leg. That was the real passport to merriment. Corey's mom came with us and we met up with Jason, Christina and Liam. 

I noticed a few things I found odd and slightly frightening. A knife and metal star throwing booth?
 No, it'll be fun! 

WTF?! Seriously. 

Less frightening but still weird. 

I love people watching and if you share these feelings I highly recommend a Ren Fair. Not to mention all the great food, lots of stores (mostly containing Medieval accessories so you'll likely not spend a lot of money), they had some really good Celtic bands, belly dancers, jousting, knights in shining armor, lots of medieval cleavage and the list goes on. I'm not going to lie. If peer pressured just a little, I'd totally dress up.

You couldn't find your wench dress?! I know right where mine is;) But seriously, I might have nightmare about that guy on the stilts. It was a guy right?

Is Johnny Fox the sword swallower still working the Maryland Ren Faire? We saw him multiple times back when I lived in Maryland and he is one of the best live performers I've ever seen!
