Well friends...it was my turn to plan a mystery trip for my bestfriend and myself! I choose the Folsom Renaissance Faire! It was different but a blast at the same time! We were some of the first ones in the faire, wearing street cloths. So, in the beginning felt a bit out of place. Soon that was a distant memory as we casually drifted to different venues. Here are some of the first group of people we saw. We saw these Spanish swashbucklers! Yep, they even had the accent down!
We saw knights and ladies in waiting, we saw peasants and royalty! We had fabulous food and even got to see some kick-a** jousting! Yes you heard me right...JOUSTING! Real live-oh-my-on-the-edge-watching jousting! THAT WAS THE MOST fun for Adrien and I both! Got some great photos!
Here were some great pirate-ladies-waitng! They had fab costumes and really fun spirits too! All this was put together through the Saint Matthews Guild. It seems they go all over the country doing these type of faires. All very interesting to me! And Adrien even bought a goblet to remember the day!
And this photo I just loved. The action of this beautiful Beligum and rider (knight) in the throws of real jousting! Gets my blood pumping! Whhoooooaaaa! Love this sport!
Here is more info about the St. Matthew's Guild.
