Yesterday we went to a Renaissance Festival south of Columbus. The site where it was held was magnificent- several acres of stone and wooden buildings, roadways, games, and human-powered rides.
We started off with games and rides.
The costumes people were wearing were spectacular and many folks stopped and chatted with us and showed off their claws, swords, helmets, etc.
The shops were full of unique finds. The kids settled on wooden swords and shields for mementos.
Here are some of the buildings and a yarn-bombed tree.
The kids ran through a giant maze that ended with a slide and folks shared some funnel cakes.
My son met an early death.
And had a magical reawakening.
J. and I became royalty.
And we exited the castle with plans to return.
