The Ren Fest opens this weekend with re-enactors in elaborate costumes jam-packed into a recreated 16th century English Village. There are almost 100 shows daily including a pirate stunt show, a live joust, jugglers, magicians, assorted swordsmen and oh so much more. Meet Queen Elizabeth, eat a turkey leg, buy stuff from assorted artisans (I bought a leather pouch with a crystal in it once) or get drunk. They serve wine and “frothy ale.” $16.99 adults; $8.99 children. Or you can get a season pass for $100.
