Fantasy Weekend at the Sterling Renaissance Festival

Chris and I try to make it out to the Sterling Renaissance Festival each summer. It's a fun way to spend a day, and even more fun when we get talk some unsuspecting friends into going with us. This year's victims were Jim and Rhonda.

We went during fantasy weekend, so a lot of people were dressed up in crazy costumes. You can see some of those folks in the pictures near the end of this post.

As always, the performers were great and very entertaining, the food was delicious and bad for you, and the weather was actually quite nice. So I'd call this another successful visit to a long passed but not forgotten age.

So here's a little tour of our day in photos:
"Uncle Danny" performing some crazy stunts.
The Fortune Tellers hideout.
Mile-high tiramisu cake.
Watching the jousting tournament.
Enjoying our day outdoors.
Hanging out with our lovely friends Jim & Rhonda
The epic costume contest. Pretty amazing.
This guy won. Are you surprised? Check out the contacts!
There you have it. Renaissance fun with a fantasy twist.
