MOUTHY ACTRESS 6/21/2011

Good: I loved the experience of visitng the renaissance fair for the sights and sounds and the feel of stepping back in time.. Bad: My sister-in-law convinced me to finally go out to the fair with her (she goes every year) and I brought my two children, ages 5 and 8 with me. we were walking around looking for a place to sit and relax out of the sun and crowd. It was difficult enough to find places to sit since there are hardly any benches around. We finally found a spot and when we did, a girl came out of a gated area and was screaming profanities at the top of her lungs and she barged past us and almost knocked my son over.. Improvements: It took us an hour of walking around and asking anyone in a costume if there was a management office or someone we could complain to about this girl. We stopped at one of the places that sells food, and the girl working there called a security guy for us, and he escorted us to the information desk. They lady there told us that they weren't responsible for patron's behavior but if they were out of hand they'd deal with it. We told her that we remembered seeing the same girl in the parade.. Other: The lady working the information booth asked us to describe her, since there were a lot of both actors and people who worked at the booths who participated in the daily parade. My sister-in-law happened to see the girl's picture on the brochure they hand out at the gate! The lady seemed to recognize her and she told us that the situation would be "dealt with." I have no idea what was ever done but this young lady certainly did not leave us with a good impression. We will NOT be returning!. more

Renaissance Festival 7/31/2006

The Renaissance Festival is REALLY fun! It's got all this stuff from old days, like swords and axes, both wooden and real! Wands, staffs, shields, jewelry and more! From there I've gotten a wooded sword, axe, shield, one of their wands, which are wooden but are painted and look very nice, with a marble on the end and a design with some kind of, wire, maybe? Holding it on. Just last time we went I got a feather headpiece, kind of like a hat but it has no top, and jewelry. It is a great place to just hang out and buy stuff! more

Renaissance Festival in Holly, Michigan 7/14/2006

This starts 8/19 through 10/1 here in Michigan this year. It is located in Holly, Michigan and is a HUGE, FUN gathering of people from all over! Each weekend has a different theme. This is such a unique event! There are hundreds, perhaps even 1,000 vendors, at this place. They sell ANYTHING and EVERYTHING related to a renaissance festival of the old! You can get wooden swords, as well as real ones! You can buy walking sticks, jewelry, clothing, knick knacks for the house, wands! Face painting, pony rides, festival rides are all available for the kids! There is jousting that takes place, too! You can get beer and HUGE drumsticks of chicken, bigger than your hand!! LOL Just like the days of old! The cost is usually about $15, or more, for an adult but look for coupons to save a few bucks! Arrive early because it gets busy from about noon on! We get there when the open at 10 a.m. and usually leave about noon with the kids. This year, I believe we will be going back with just my husband and I for some "adult" fun! LOL more

Go if never been 11/19/2005

I went for the first time and had just a ball here. I found that my kids got board but it was fun of us adults. They act out the past and they dress up like in the olden days. They have sword fights etc. People go just as them and some of them dress up and go with the flow of the festival. I thought the price was really high for what they have but what isnt anymore. It is really great but I would not go every years once you have been its the same thing yr after yr in my eyes. more
