Although you don't have to spend a lot of money I would suggest taking as much as you can muster for this event because there is plenty of food, drinks, activities, and LOTS of cool stuff available for purchase. This time I engaged in the food and drink and when I go again I plan on making it a little more of a shopping trip. ;)
As far as dress is concerned, you are more than welcome to dress up in Renaissance gear which is another thing I will engage in the next time I go. If not, that is perfectly fine too. When we went, we saw the opening ceremony, a joust, the Queen's court, tons of cool costumes and outfits, loads of food, activities, a lake, ducks, lots of goodies I wanted to buy, a "naughty" show with sexy jokes, and much more. I also saw fairies, strapping men, and quite a few bosoms... Hello corsets!!!
And now, for some pictures!!
|So many things I wanted to buy|
|Will you find these?|
|The Queen is coming!|
|The most delicious ale ;)|
|I almost thought she was a statue until she moved!|
|Beautiful and entrancing, this one...|
|Ah bring on the mischief indeed.|
