Ready to Renaissance

 

So I’m way behind on posting this! Butttt! Just about every year Justin and I head over to the Texas Renaissance Festival in Todd Mission, Texas! This is a really fun tradition. I mean, what’s not to love about festival food and people watching!

 

This year, when we arrived it was cold and rainy! So, as we walked up to the gate we were deciding if we wanted to go in or not. Since we had come all this way to go, we decided to head on in! Naturally, that meant getting a hot chocolate right away!

 

We also got fried mac and cheese, a porkchop-on-a-stick, and a turkey leg! It was a day of food to say the least. For the most part everything was delicious, but I don’t recommend their porkchop-on-a-stick…it tasted kinda weird!

 

We saw shops filled with jewelry, weapons, and varying nicknacks. There were suits of armor everywhere, elephants giving people rides, horses in jousting tournaments and pulling carriages, and plenty of games! We tried to throw axes. Tried being the key word! This is definitely not my forte! I didn’t get a single one to stick in the wall! Justin did one of the games where you hit a hammer as hard as you can on a dome and a light goes up to see how strong you are- he did pretty well! It got about 75% of the way up. Walking around the fair was so fun. There are so many gorgeous places gardens and buildings!! We even paused to watch people try to dump a “witch” in water by throwing bean bags at a target that makes the woman fall, and her heckle at those attempting to do so! Her jokes were pretty good!

 

If you’ve never been, it is definitely worth the trip! It’s a blast to be thrown into the past and experience the English Renaissance.
