I've lived in the Twin Cities for almost 10 years now and have never been to the Renaissance Festival. It only runs Aug & Sept but somehow never made it out there. Well this year we made it out there. The St Louis Park Bjorgaard's joined us along with Manny Russ. Eric's mom Char and her husband Randy and our special guests from WI my aunt Diane and her son Logan.
We drove down 169 and parked in a huge field. Headed into this big castle looking area and once we got in I was a little overwhelmed. This place was crazy!!! There was food, stages, shops, and booths everywhere. Not to mention people dressed up in Renaissance costumes everywhere. A lot to take in and do but with a small child you have pick your spots wisely. We unfortunately didn't get to take in a lot of the shows but found plenty of other things to do and see.
Chase rode on his first Elephant, feed some goats, ate part of a turkey leg, and enjoyed playing in the dirt.
