Hear ye! Hear ye! This past weekend I went to the STL Ren Faire for the first time. I had such a blast! There were activities for all ages, games for the little ones, pubs for the adults. They had archery, axe and knife throwing. You could get your face painted. The food was delicious and the smell permeated the whole place. They had juggling acts and even a joust. A new addition this year was a wand maker. I inquired and was told they plan to be back next year as well, so any Harry Potter fans out there who would like their very own wand, here’s your chance. There were also shops where you could buy armor, shields, swords and even elf ears and horns. I was also introduced to an incredible trio called Pictus. They are a bagpipe and drum group. Highly recommend taking a listen. It was so exciting and the cosplays were amazing as well. All in all, this was a wonderful experience and perfect for bringing the whole family. I can’t wait to go again next year.
