Are You Going to Scarborough Faire?
Last year I went to Scarborough Faire in Waxahachie, Texas. It was my first time at a Renaissance Faire, and I loved it. It was a perfect day for taking photos: sunny, but not too hot. There were lots of things to take photos from, from kitchy signs to full-on jousting. Then there was an array of carnival food (“Ye Olde Nachos”) and handmade items. There were a lot of things to see and do, but the best part of Scarborough Faire were the people. From the women in sexy medieval corsets to the Trekkies in anachronistic cosplay, I could have spent all day people watching. When it comes to Renaissance Faires, it’s all about the human experience.
If you’ve never been to a Renaissance Faire, I recommend you go. I had always wanted to go to one back in Michigan, but in all of my years of living there, I never quite got around to it. It wasn’t till I had been living in Texas for a few years that I finally got to go. Now I’m glad I went. So glad, in fact that I went back this year too.
Have you ever been to Scarborough Faire? What about other Renaissance Festivals? If so let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
