Georgia Renaissance Festival {usfg}

"Lord Garrett! Lord Garrett is here!" 
"Make way please, Lord Garrett has arrived!" 
That was how we were greeted at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. They had no idea who we were or that we were there to review the festival so I thought that was awesome. Garrett and Em thought it was pretty funny too. 

Lord Garrett! 

Before you enter the festival there is a shop to rent costumes. All shapes, sizes and colors. We did wander through there a little, of course Emmaleigh wanted just about all of them! And the wagon! 

When we got to the festival and parked there were alot of cars, we assumed it was going to be a little crowded but that wasn't the case at all. Because the grounds were so big there wasn't alot of crowding. Made the visit even better because the kids, mainly the younger ones, like to walk on their own and wander. Less crowds makes it easier to keep track of everyone. 

Free Juggling! 

Some of the shows included The Wheel of Death, The Tortuga Twins, Birds of Prey, Jousting, and the favorite was the Splatter Time Mud Show. We did not make it through all of the shows but we really did enjoy the ones we did. They were all entertaining and very interactive with the audience. 

Wheel of Death 

He got a muddy hug for his tip!

The festival was full of good food. Turkey Legs were a must have! There was also fried pickles, mac n cheese on a stick, giant pretzels, and Merlin's magical cinnamon almonds. {{YUM}} 

As you walk through the Artist Markets you can't help but notice all the handmade goodies! There tons of things to buy. Handmade costumes, leather goods, jewelry, and of course toys. There are demonstrations going on as you walk through for glass blowing, coin minting, and weaving. The girls enjoyed walking through the weaving areas to see how things were being made. The didgeridoo was the most fun, we all liked watching people attempt to play. 

And if the all the stuff above does not make you want to visit the Georgia Renaissance Festival, go to see Kira! Where else will you find a real unicorn? She was very magical and you can feed her while you are there. 

When you go:
Grab a map. You can find them right when you walk through the ticket area, by the Frog Pond. On the other side of the map is a list of all the shows (where they are and when) as well as information on special events. 
Take a little extra money. While the ticket prices include the shows and the petting farm, they do not include most of the rides and games. 
And most importantly: TIP THE TORTOISE! 

"Every weekend and Memorial Day, April 18 thru June 7, 2015 The 30th Annual Georgia Renaissance Festival is a family-friendly event, and a different kind of theme park. Inside this 32-acre recreation of a 16th Century English Village you'll find hundreds of costumed characters, the Queen and her Court, endless circus-style entertainment on 10 stages, shopping in over 130 artisan shoppes, food fit for Royalty, games and rides for kids of all ages, and the spectacular Jousting Knights on horseback. Patrons are invited to wear costumes and join in the fun too. It's a whole lotta' fun, and a little bit of History, every weekend and Memorial Day, April 18 thru June 7, 2015."
