Scarborough Faire 2012 Photos

Scarborough Faire is an annual Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas, an hour south of Dallas. My friends and I went back in 2011 and had a blast, so when the 2012 festival rolled around, I had no qualms about going back. It was a little cloudier than I would have liked, but the sun came out mid-afternoon. Overall, I had a great time with my friends, and I got some awesome pictures.
