Fun Things to Do At The Texas Renaissance Festival -- Part 2

The Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville, Texas has been going on every October and November since the 1970's. 

ren fest

 The structures are built with authenticity in mind.

pretty costumes

These ladies have on some of my favorite costumes.  They look like velvet or something very soft, and the colors are wonderful.

walking tree

This is the walking tree.  He is over 12 feet high. 

 

paper

Here is a piece of paper that was made at the festival and then they used a Gutenberg Press to print the ink on to it.

little queen

 Not just the adults dress in period costume, this young lady looks like a queen.  She is next to the jousting arena.

tower climb

 Here is the tower climb, for both young and old alike.

kidds

Here are some adorable goats that were in the petting zoo.  Don't worry, when they are not here at the ren fest, they are at a farm in Cypress, Texas.  To see more of my pictures of the ren fest, click on my Texas Renaissance Festival -- Part 1 blog.

For directions, more information and a video of the attractions (belly dancing, etc.) click on the website for The Texas Renaissance Festival.

Hi Liz, that looks like a great way to spend the day with the kids.

My husband always tries to get me to go to Renaissance Festivals but I always decline so he goes by himself. Am I too much of a fuddy duddy?

Hey Jim, they actually are pretty fun.  Looking at the costumes people think up is just one part of it.  I meant to get jousting pics but I timed it wrong and missed it.  Maybe next year.
