I love going to the Renaissance Festivals, so this year I asked my husband if we could go celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. There are so many attractions to entertain and delight people of all ages. There are games, rides, & adventures, food galore, shops, shows, and joust tournaments. This year's new additions were "The Living Mermaids and the Carnevale Stage. Some of the things I enjoyed were Lady Tess the Fashion Advisor, musical groups, shopping, and the turkey drumsticks.
Don't miss the final weekend of the Arizona Renaissance Festival. It could be a great way to celebrate Easter or just to get out and enjoy a Arizona day of fun in the sun. Join them for the Spring Basket/Easter Basket Contest at 2 pm on Sunday, March 27th. Bring a creatively designed Easter Basket that will be judged on Decore, Uniqueness, and Pizzazz. Contest is for adults ages 13-99 and Children ages 4-12. Plus Mountain Man from KYOT will be at there from 9:30am - 11:30am.
You can see in the collage above, some of the fun activities we participated in. My husband using his strong arms at High Striker, my son riding a camel for the first time, and my husband & son trying on hats. The top right photo is my husband talking to Raven Copeland, the owner of Raven's Glass, who graciously came over to explain how he makes the beautiful marbles we were interested in. He also had a lot of wonderful pieces of glass work on display.
My husband bought me one of the marbles that Raven made.
As a memento of our 25 years of marriage my husband consented to having our hands waxed. After dipping our hands in ice water for about 25 seconds we went to the wax pots where the wax experts dipped our hands in hot wax about 12 times. The excess wax was trimmed away, then the man had us dip our hands in ice water while he removed the mold from our hands. We had our wax hand mold dipped in black paint then had silver threads put on to represent our aged hands. I love the way it came out and I am so glad we did it.
