King Richard's Faire, Part 2

He tried his hand at the knife throw.

In his happy place with a giant turkey leg and a Pepsi

The painted designs on these velvet cloaks are amazing.


  1. Oh dang, what I miss about faire is TURKEY LEG! Om nom nom nom!

    A Ladybug's Life


  2. We actually had King Richard, and we don't do stuff like this!

  3. You find the Most interesting places!

    Looks like something from 'A Knight's Tale' ;0)

  5. I want a turkey leg!!! And I want a sign and tent if the 'Beer Wench' can have one! lol

    Love the photos. Makes me want to find a Ren Fair so I can find some turkey legs of my own!

  6. I'd've gotten a turkey leg too but I don't eat dark meat. Or skin.

    Val, I was reading about the history of the Ren Faire and was amused to find out that it's definitely an American invention. It's our romanticized view of medieval England I guess!!

    Music Wench, I can't remember what state you are in but try this site for a list of faires by state:

  7. Thanks for the list JoJo! I discovered I'm a lousy newsperson. There are two in my general vicinity and while I have heard of one, the other I was totally clueless about! lol Oh and I'm in Michigan.

    Oh man, the skin on turkey or chicken is the best part! Never been to a renaissance fair even though we have them in Pittsburgh. I love all the different signs and how funny some of the sayings are.
