Have you ever heard of a Renaissance Fair? A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to King Richard’s Renaissance Faire! The faire is in Carver Massachusetts and is definitely worth going too. They have everything from costume rentals to tigers. There are shows, jousting, good food, costumes, jewelry, and of course tigers. We were lucky enough to see most of these things before the faire closes at 6 o’clock.
We started off the day by going to see Danny Lord’s silent comedy show. I was walking by the show and Danny used his cane and lightly hooked around my neck and showed me where to sit down. That was hilarious according to my brother. The show itself was funny too. When you go to a Renaissance Faire always expect to be one of the actors in the play because most of the time the performers will choose people who do not raise their hand to be in the show. However, I could not stop laughing the entire time I was being dragged over to my seat.
Next we went to see some of the shops. They line the entire area of the faire. They sold mugs, jewelry, shoes, fake tails, horns, and even swing chairs. I wanted to get some jewelry but I could not find anything I liked in the store. After we window shopped we went to get some lunch. I got a peasant pattie (hamburger) with fryes (fries). My brother got a turkey leg, and my parents got an ear of corn (corn on the cob). There was a wide variety of food there but you need to get food coupons to pay. We found that out the hard way.
Then we got to see some more shows. There was a Whip show where the performer Jack used all different types of whips. He would ask for volunteers to hold something and Jack would slice it in half with his whip. It was very entertaining. We also saw a sword fight and my dad was one of the volunteers! Then there was jousting, my favorite part of our adventure. After all that we saw the tale of the tiger and it was all about these huge tigers. One of them was over 1,000 pounds!
We ended the day by getting fried dough or peasants bread and soda. I had a lot of fun on this trip. Lots of entertainment and funny costumes! Next year I want to dress up. To plan your trip to King Richard’s Renaissance Faire visit: http://kingrichardsfaire.net/
