We went on the best field trip this week. We went to the Ohio Renaissance Festival for Student Day. We've never been to a Renaissance festival before. Wow, it was very fun! It was a lot different that I expected. It was sort of a craft show, carnival and amusement park rolled into one.
My kids really loved the shops (of course). S-Doll wanted to "drench a wench", dunking tank Medieval-style. You could throw vegetables at a Jester. There was real-live jousting (mom's favorite activity from the day). Shakespeare spoke to the attendees. There were classes in sword-fighting. Pirates and more. It was great.
There were lots of students from schools, home schools and more. It was definitely a fun outing, we're already making plans to attend next year.
