From August through October each year in Crownsville Maryland a little bit of the past comes back to entertain us. The Maryland Renaissance Festival is by far one of the best of the genre – and again, it’s right here in Maryland. Spend the day in the shade of the trees, strolling through shops containing goods such as hand made pottery, herbs, blown glass, unusual jewelry, and renaissance clothing. Snack on turkey legs and fried cheese – and my favorite, cheesecake on a stick. Taste some mead – it is interesting, and yummy! If you want to really lose yourself – dress up! Come on! No one will think you look silly, because plenty of others are dressed up too!
