Yesterday, I spent the day at one of my absolute favourite places—The Renaissance Faire! If you are not familiar, a Renaissance Faire is a recreation of a Renaissance or Medieval village. They are filled with costumed actors, crafts and games to give patrons the illusion that they have stepped back in time. The New York Renaissance Faire (which is only twenty minutes from my house!) features over 125 performance on 20 stages and over 100 craftspeople set on 65 acres of beautiful Sterling Forest. If you are ever in my area (Northern New Jersey or even in NYC) in August – September, I highly recommend making a visit to the faire.
Some of my favourite stops at the faire are the bird aviary, the archery show (featuring Lady Marian & Robinhood!), the tightrope walker, the gypsy belly-dancers,the faerie forest, and of course all of the delicious food & magical shoppes.
Here are a few snaps that I took on my iPhone yesterday. I had so much fun!
Hope you’ve had a gorgeous weekend!
In love & light,
