Ohio Renaissance Festival - Part 2 of 3

 Good morning,

These images are Part 2 of our adventure at the Ohio Renaissance Fair.  My Honey, grand kids Kate and Alex, and I have arrived at the Fair and are now standing in line to get our tickets. 
 To the left of the entrance is a special parking space for hogs.  ;)
There is an effort to provide a real feel that a visit to the Fair is a trip back to the Renaissance period.  People who work at the Fair are in period costume as well as many who visit.  But, some new gadgets are impossible to avoid here.  Note the lady in the white dress, so lovely in her period outfit, using a cell phone.  I'm so glad there is cell service available!
 If you don't come in costume, you can buy your costume here.
 We made only one trip through the grounds and could have taken many, many more pictures of the different shops and activities.
 Jewelry...
 ...signs...
 ...bird houses...
 ...FOOD... (more about food later)
 ...and very lovely...
 ...dresses are all available.
 The air is filled with music as well as wonderful food.
 Here's another Viking with horns.  This group has a great display with gifts to purchase at the Fair every year.
 Alex was excited to see the Spanish Galleon...
 ...where actors...
 ...were preparing for a show.
We moved on, though, past more costumed fellows, on our way to find a special treat.

Tomorrow we'll have something special to eat, then complete our trip all the way through the grounds of the Ohio Renaissance Festival.  I hope you'll join us then. 

Very best,

Lois

It looks like fun. All these years we've been here and have never gone. Your grandchildren are beautiful!

Looks like fun, with lots of interesting things to see - and eat!

It looks very nice! I am sure there was much to see, and fun for the kids.
And it looks hot, here it is rainy and cold wind.

This is so neat Lois. It reminds me of King Richards Fair, very similar, Jake and I used to attend with the kids years ago up north. It was a whole lotta fun! Love Di ♥

It all looks very interesting. I had to laugh about the cell phone. There has been a clip from an old Charlie Chaplin movie circulating that shows a lady walking by with her hand up to her ear like she is talking on a cell phone. Of course there is the speculation that she is a time traveler....

Good morning,

Yes, Elaine, I thought of that movie clip of the time traveling woman, too. :))

It was fun, so much fun. We have gone in previous years and I'm glad we went this year with the kids, too.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
Lois
