This epic old-timey fair is a favorite among kids, with all the rides, games and dudes jousting. If you haven’t hit up the fest since you were in Velcro shoes, make a trip to Harveysburg some weekend through Oct. 21 rediscover the Ohio Renaissance Festival as an adult. There’s a ton of food, shopping and attractions packed into the 30-acre, 16th century English village replica: giant turkey legs and bread bowl stews, crossbows and camel rides and dudes jousting! And what would a good Renaissance-era celebration be without some booze? Imbibe in traditional beverages of the adult variety (I hear Bud Light Lime-a-Rita was Queen Elizabeth I’s drink of choice) as you peruse booths of handcrafted jewelry, costumes and lots more goodies. 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and Labor Day through Oct. 21. $16.99 online/$19.99 at the gates; $8.99/$9.99 children 5-12; $100 four-person package including admission, food, drinks and coupons. 513-987-7000, renfestival.com.
