Looking for something fun and exciting to do on the week-ends? Right now the Arizona Renaissance Festival is going on till the end of March. The festival is a fun medieval amusement park that will entertain you all day long with many things to see and do. My husband and I celebrated our 24th Anniversary this Valentine's Day and we decided to spend it with our youngest son at one of the best places that we enjoy as a family.
The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park with lots for a family to see and do; entertaining shows, music, a feast, games, climbing wall, camel and llama rides, an arts and crafts fair, jousting tournament, a Pleasure Feast with 5 courses, and lots more! The festival runs for eight week-ends beginning February 7th - March 29th. 2015 on Saturdays, Sundays, and President's Day from 10:00am-6:00pm. Tickets are $22 for adults, $12 for children 5-12, and FREE for children under 5. You can also purchase discount tickets at your local FRYS grocery store to save a few bucks.
There are 12 different stages with comedy shows where we laughed our heads off like Nunnery Nunnery, the hypnotist, and watching Vegetable Justice where you throw tomatoes at a man who insults you (some people might find this offensive). The belly dancers and a Scottish band were very entertaining. We browsed through Renaissance clothing, candle, and toy shops. Watching the glass blowing is one of my favorite thing to do. To fill our tummies we ate roasted turkey legs and drank frozen lemonade to cool us off. My husband participated in the sledgehammer tournament game and made it to the second round, while our son tried his luck on Jacobs Ladder. The funnest part of the day for us was cheering on our armored knight on at the jousting tournament. At the end of the day I had Graci from Gilded Plume put feathers in my newly cut short hair to give it some pizazz. I always wear my special Renaissance dress so I feel as if I am at a village festival during the European Renaissance. HUZZAH!
